     WHEREAS, Landlord is the owner of the following (collectively, the “ Office Complex ”):

                 (i) the parcel of land more particularly described on Exhibit A attached hereto (the “ Land ”);

                (ii) the building and other improvements (including a below-grade parking garage) situated on the Land
currently known as 12061 Bluemont Way in Reston, Virginia (the “ Building ”), as more particularly described on the floor plans
attached hereto as Exhibit A-1 (the “ Floor Plans ”);

                 (iii) all fixtures located on or affixed to the Land or the Building; and

                (iv) the common and public areas of the Building, including, without limitation, the Parking Facilities, sidewalks,
rooftop deck, basketball court, tennis court and any other amenities of the Office Complex external to the Building (the “ 
Common Areas ”).

     WHEREAS, Tenant desires to lease from Landlord, and Landlord desires to lease to Tenant, one hundred percent
(100%) of the Office Complex (the “ Premises ”), upon the terms and conditions of this Lease. Landlord and Tenant hereby
conclusively agree that the Building contains 221,326 rentable square feet as determined pursuant to the ANSI/BOMA
Z65.1.1996 Method of Measurement (ANSI-1996).

     NOW, THEREFORE, for the mutual covenants herein contained and other good and valuable consideration, the receipt
and adequacy of which are hereby conclusively acknowledged, the parties hereto hereby covenant as follows:

     1. Definitions and Interpretation . All capitalized terms used in this Lease and not otherwise defined herein shall have the
meanings given to them in Exhibit C attached hereto, and the provisions of this Lease shall be interpreted in accordance with
the rules of construction set forth therein.

      2. Demise, Premises, Term, Rent, Parking, and Partial Surrender . Landlord hereby leases to Tenant, and Tenant hereby
leases from Landlord, the Premises, upon and subject to the terms, covenants, provisions and conditions of this Lease. Tenant
shall have the exclusive right to use the Common Areas of the Office Complex, subject to the reasonable use of the Common
Areas by Landlord (including Landlord’s agents, employees and contractors) in performing Landlord’s duties and exercising
Landlord’s rights under this Lease.
          2.1 Tenant shall have access to and from the Premises, 24 hours a day, seven (7) days a week, 365 days a year, 
throughout the Term (except during bona fide emergencies that actually require that Tenant be precluded from accessing the
Premises, and then only for the period actually necessitated by such emergency), including any extensions thereof.

           2.2(a) The term of this Lease (as the same may be renewed, the “ Term ”) shall commence on the date that Landlord
tenders possession of the entire Premises to Tenant in accordance with Section 3.1 , free of all tenants and other occupants (the
“ Commencement Date ”) and shall expire at 11:59 p.m. on the Expiration Date unless earlier terminated pursuant to any of the
conditions or covenants of this Lease. Provided no Event of Default exists at the time Tenant gives the extension notice (a “ 
Renewal Notice ”) to Landlord, Tenant may, at Tenant’s sole election, renew the Term for two (2) renewal terms of five (5) years 
each (each, a “ Renewal Term ”), with the first Renewal Term commencing on the day after the initial Expiration Date and the
second Renewal Term commencing on the day after the expiration of the first Renewal Term, by giving Landlord the Renewal
Notice at least twelve (12) months but not more than fifteen (15) months prior to, for the first Renewal Term, the initial Expiration 
Date, and for the second Renewal Term, the expiration of the first Renewal Term. If Tenant gives a Renewal Notice to Landlord
in accordance with this Section, then, subject to this Section, the Term shall be renewed for the first Renewal Term and/or the
second Renewal Term (as applicable) and Tenant shall have no right to renew or extend the Term beyond the second Renewal
Term. It shall be a condition to Tenant’s extension of the Term for the second Renewal Term that Tenant shall have renewed the
Term for the first Renewal Term.

                  (b) Landlord shall give Tenant at least ninety (90) days prior written notice, followed by a thirty (30) day prior 
written notice of the date that Landlord reasonably anticipates will be the Commencement Date, followed by no less than a ten
(10) day prior written notice of the actual Commencement Date, which Commencement Date shall in no event be earlier than 
February 1, 2011. As of the Effective Date, Landlord and Tenant anticipate that the Commencement Date will be no later than on 
July 1, 2011. If the Commencement Date does not occur on or before November 30, 2011, then Tenant shall have the right to 
terminate this Lease by thereafter delivering to Landlord a thirty (30) day written notice of the exercise of such right, in which 
event this Lease shall terminate and be of no further force or effect and neither party shall have any further rights or obligations
hereunder; provided, however, if the Commencement Date occurs during such thirty (30) day period, Tenant’s exercise of its
termination right shall be deemed null and void.

                   (c) Landlord and Tenant acknowledge that, as of the Effective Date, the Premises is occupied by Sallie Mae,
Inc. (or parties claiming through Sallie Mae, Inc.) (“ Sallie Mae ”). Prior to the Effective Date, Landlord has entered into an
agreement (the “ Sallie Mae Termination Agreement ”) with Sallie Mae for the early termination of Sallie Mae’s existing lease
for the Premises (the “ Sallie Mae Lease ”), and Landlord has provided to Tenant a true, correct and complete copy of the Sallie
Mae Termination Agreement (redacted, if Landlord deems such redaction to be appropriate, other than with respect to the term
expiration and termination provisions). The Sallie Mae Termination Agreement provides, among other things,
  
                                                                 -2-
that (i) the Sallie Mae Lease shall expire, at Sallie Mae’s option, on June 30, 2011, July 31, 2011 or August 31, 2011 (the “ Sallie
Mae Expiration Date ”), (ii) on the Sallie Mae Expiration Date, Sallie Mae shall surrender the Premises to Landlord broom clean 
and in good order and condition, ordinary wear and tear and damage for which Sallie Mae is not responsible under the terms of
the Sallie Mae Lease excepted (the “ Sallie Mae Delivery Condition ”), (iii) on the Sallie Mae Expiration Date, good and 
marketable title of the Furnishings (as defined in Section 2.7 ) shall be conveyed by Sallie Mae to Landlord, and (iv) on the Sallie 
Mae Expiration Date, Sallie Mae shall have removed all of Sallie Mae’s signs (including all monument, exterior Building signs
and signs within the Premises) and shall have repaired and restored any damage caused thereby. Landlord shall use
commercially reasonable good faith efforts to enforce (including, if necessary, litigation) all of Sallie Mae’s obligations arising
under the Sallie Mae Termination Agreement, and, on a regular basis, Landlord shall keep Tenant informed of the status of Sallie
Mae’s departure from the Premises and the status of Landlord’s efforts to enforce Sallie Mae’s obligations under the Sallie Mae
Lease Termination Agreement. Landlord shall have no obligation to make any payment to Sallie Mae in order to entice Sallie
Mae to surrender possession of the Premises to Landlord.

            2.3(a) The fixed rent (“ Fixed Rent ”) payable by Tenant under this Lease shall be as set forth on Schedule 2.3 . Fixed
Rent payable during any Renewal Term shall be as provided in Section 2.3(d) . Monthly Fixed Rent shall be due and payable by
Tenant in advance on the first (1 st ) day of each calendar month during the Term (each, a “ Rent Payment Date ”), beginning on
the 151 st day from the Commencement Date (or, if such 151 st day is not the first (1 st ) day of a calendar month, the first Rent 
Payment Date shall be the first (1 st ) day of the calendar month immediately following such 151  st day, and Tenant shall be liable
for Fixed Rent (calculated on a per diem basis) for each day of the period beginning on such 151 st day and ending on the day
prior to such first (1 st ) day of such calendar month). Such first Rent Payment Date is herein referred to as the “ Rent
Commencement Date ” ( e.g. , if the Commencement Date is July 1, 2011, the Rent Commencement Date and the first Rent 
Payment Date will be December 1, 2011). Notwithstanding the foregoing to the contrary, Tenant shall be entitled to an 
abatement of, and Landlord hereby waives Tenant’s obligation to pay, fifty percent (50%) of all Fixed Rent installments with 
respect to the period beginning on the Rent Commencement Date and ending on the day immediately preceding the eighteenth
(18 th ) monthly anniversary of the Rent Commencement Date (the “ Abatement Period ”). Nothing herein contained shall be
deemed to diminish or relieve Tenant of its obligation to pay in accordance with the terms of this Lease all sums owed by
Tenant to Landlord under this Lease during the Abatement Period other than Fixed Rent. Commencing on the first day following
the Abatement Period, the full installments of Fixed Rent shall then and thereafter be payable in full by Tenant in accordance
with the terms of the Lease.

               (b) Tenant shall pay to Landlord, in addition to Fixed Rent, any and all other sums of money as shall become
due from and payable by Tenant to Landlord in accordance with the provisions of this Lease (collectively, the “ Additional Rent
”).

                (c) The following provisions shall govern the payment of Rent: (i) the covenant to pay Rent shall be 
independent of every other covenant in this Lease; (ii) in the event of the expiration or termination of this Lease prior to the 
determination of any Additional Rent, Tenant’s agreement to pay any such sums and Landlord’s obligation to refund any such
sums
  
                                                                 -3-
shall survive the expiration or termination of this Lease; and (iii) each amount owed to Landlord under this Lease for which the 
date of payment is not expressly fixed shall be due thirty (30) days after the date of Tenant’s receipt of the statement showing
the amount due.

                 (d)(i) The annual Fixed Rent payable during a Renewal Term shall be the Renewal Rate (no rate floor) for the
Premises as of the commencement of the applicable Renewal Term (the “ Renewal Calculation Date ”), with such Renewal Rate
being escalated on each anniversary of the Renewal Calculation Date by the market escalation rate that shall be determined as
part of the determination of the Renewal Rate.

                      (ii) The “ Renewal Rate ” means the fair market triple net rental rate for the Premises as of the Renewal
Calculation Date based on comparable space in Comparable Buildings for tenants having status comparable to Tenant’s status;
considering all of Landlord’s services to be provided under this Lease during the applicable Renewal Term; with Tenant being
required to pay Taxes (and Management Costs, if Landlord exercises its rights under Section 6.3 following an Operating Failure)
pursuant to Section 4 of this Lease; assuming the Renewal Term rent is not set forth in the lease between the parties; assuming
that the leased premises is unencumbered ( e.g. , the leased premises is not subject to another party’s superior expansion right);
and otherwise taking all relevant factors into account including, without limitation, the following (to the extent applicable): rental
abatements, brokerage commissions, the condition of the Premises, build-out periods and construction allowances for standard
and above-standard construction and “downtime” that may be associated with the renewal or comparable transactions.
Escalations in the Renewal Rate during a Renewal Term shall be determined by market practice with respect to comparable space
in Comparable Buildings.

                     (iii) Landlord shall advise Tenant (the “ Renewal Rent Notice ”) of Landlord’s determination of the
Renewal Rate within ten (10) days after receiving the Renewal Notice. If Tenant does not accept Landlord’s determination of the
Renewal Rate, the parties shall meet and seek to reach agreement on the Renewal Rate during the thirty (30) day period that 
begins when Tenant receives the Extension Rent Notice (the “ Renewal Negotiation Period ”).

                       (iv) If Landlord and Tenant do not agree upon the Renewal Rate in writing within the Renewal Negotiation
Period, Tenant shall within five (5) Business Days after the expiration of the Renewal Negotiation Period notify Landlord in 
writing that Tenant elects to either (x) withdraw Tenant’s Renewal Notice, in which event Tenant’s Renewal Notice will be of no
force or effect and the Term of this Lease shall end on the original Expiration Date, or (y) require that such disagreement be 
resolved by arbitration in accordance with the procedures set forth below (and in the absence of such notice from Tenant,
Tenant shall be deemed to have elected to proceed under clause (y)):

                            (A) In the event Tenant delivers the notice described in Section 2.3(d)(iv) requiring arbitration as
described in clause (y) of said Section (or is deemed to have given such notice pursuant to said clause (y)), within five 
(5) Business Days of delivery of such notice (or deemed delivery) Tenant shall provide Landlord with notice of the name and 
address of the person to act as the arbitrator on Tenant’s behalf. The arbitrator shall be a real estate broker licensed in the
Commonwealth of Virginia with at least ten (10) years full-time
  
                                                                 -4-
commercial brokerage experience who is familiar with the fair market rental rate of comparable space in Comparable Buildings.
Within ten (10) Business Days after the service of Tenant’s designation of Tenant’s arbitrator, the Landlord shall give notice to
Tenant specifying the name and address of the person designated by Landlord to act as arbitrator on its behalf, which arbitrator
shall be similarly qualified. If a party fails to notify the other party of the appointment of its arbitrator within the time period
specified in this Section 2.3(d)(iv)(A) , and such failure continues for three (3) Business Days after such other party delivers a 
second notice to the first party, then the arbitrator appointed by such other party shall be the arbitrator to determine the
Renewal Rate.

                             (B) The arbitrators shall meet within ten (10) Business Days after the second arbitrator is appointed 
and shall seek to reach agreement on Renewal Rate. If within twenty (20) Business Days after the second arbitrator is appointed 
the two (2) arbitrators do not reach agreement on Renewal Rate then the two (2) arbitrators shall appoint a third arbitrator, who 
shall be a person with qualifications similar to those required of the first two (2) arbitrators; provided, however, that in no event 
shall such third arbitrator be a broker that either Landlord or Tenant has engaged pursuant to a written agreement during the
five (5) year period prior to appointment of such third arbitrator. If the two (2) arbitrators do not agree upon such appointment 
within five (5) Business Days after expiration of such twenty (20) Business Day period, then either party, on behalf of both, may 
request appointment of such a qualified person by the then president of the Greater Washington Commercial Association of
REALTORS®, or the successor organization thereto. Each party shall pay the fees and expenses of its respective arbitrator and
both shall share the fees and expenses of the third arbitrator. Attorneys’ fees and expenses of counsel and of witnesses for the
respective parties shall be paid by the respective party engaging such counsel or calling such witnesses.

                             (C) The Renewal Rate shall be determined by the third arbitrator in accordance with the following
procedures. Concurrently with the appointment of the third arbitrator, each of the arbitrators selected by the parties shall state,
in writing, his or her determination of the Renewal Rate supported by the reasons therefor. The third arbitrator shall have the
right to consult experts and competent authorities for factual information or evidence pertaining to a determination of the
Renewal Rate, but any such determination shall be made in the presence of both parties with full right on their part to cross-
examine. The third arbitrator shall conduct such hearings and investigations as he or she deems appropriate and shall, within
thirty (30) days after being appointed, select which of the two (2) proposed determinations most closely approximates his or her 
determination of the Renewal Rate. The third arbitrator shall have no right to propose a middle ground or any modification of
either of the two proposed determinations. The determination that the third arbitrator chooses as that most closely
approximating his or her determination of the Renewal Rate shall constitute the decision of the third arbitrator and shall be final
and binding upon the parties. The third arbitrator shall render his or her decision in writing with counterpart copies to each
party. The third arbitrator shall have no power to add to or modify the provisions of this Lease. Promptly following receipt of
the third arbitrator’s decision, the parties shall enter into an amendment to this Lease confirming the Renewal Rate, but the
failure of the parties to do so shall not affect the effectiveness of the third arbitrator’s determination or the effectiveness of the
Renewal Term.
  
                                                                 -5-
     




                             (D) In the event of a failure, refusal or inability of any arbitrator to act, his or her successor shall be
appointed by him or her, but in the case of the third arbitrator, his or her successor shall be appointed in the same manner as
that set forth herein with respect to the appointment of the original third arbitrator.

           2.4 Tenant covenants and agrees to pay Fixed Rent and the Additional Rent (collectively, “ Rent ”) promptly when
due without notice or demand therefor, except as such notice or demand may be expressly provided for in this Lease, and
without any abatement, deduction or setoff for any reason whatsoever except as otherwise expressly provided for in this Lease.
All regularly scheduled payments of Rent ( e.g. , Fixed Rent) shall be paid by either wire or ACH transfer, in Tenant’s sole
discretion, in lawful money of the United States to Landlord at its office or such other place, or to Landlord’s agent or at such
other place, as Landlord shall designate by written notice to Tenant. Any Additional Rent payments which are not regularly
scheduled payments shall be due thirty (30) days after the date of Tenant’s receipt of the statement showing the amount due.
Such payments may be paid either by check or wire transfer. As of the Effective Date, Rent shall be paid to Landlord at Two
Embarcadero Center, 23 rd floor, San Francisco, CA 94111, Attention: Jamie McCue. 

            2.5 If the Rent Commencement Date with respect to any portion of the Premises commences on a day other than the
first (1st) day of a calendar month, or if the Expiration Date occurs on a day other than the last day of a calendar month, the 
Fixed Rent for the applicable partial calendar month shall be prorated on the basis of a 365-day year (based on the actual number
of days in question).

            2.6(a) No payment by Tenant or receipt or acceptance by Landlord of a lesser amount than the correct Fixed Rent or
Additional Rent shall be deemed to be other than a payment on account of such amount, nor shall any endorsement or
statement on any check or any letter accompanying any check or payment be deemed an accord and satisfaction, and Landlord
may accept such check or payment without prejudice to Landlord’s right to recover the balance or pursue any other remedy
provided in this Lease or at law. Additional Rent shall be deemed to be Rent under this Lease and Tenant’s failure to pay
Additional Rent in the manner provided in this Lease (subject to any applicable grace, cure or notice period) shall be considered
a failure to pay Rent under this Lease and Landlord shall be entitled to any rights and remedies provided herein or at law for
such default. If Landlord shall at any time or times accept Rent after it has become due and payable, such acceptance shall not
excuse a subsequent delay or constitute a waiver of Landlord’s rights hereunder.

                 (b) If any amount of Rent owed by Tenant to Landlord is not paid on or before the date that is ten (10) days 
after Landlord has given Tenant written notice that the payment is delinquent, then, in addition to paying the amount of Rent
then due, Tenant shall pay to Landlord a late charge (the “ Late Charge ”) equal to three percent (3%) of the amount of Rent 
then required to be paid and shall also pay interest on such Rent from the date due until the date paid at the Applicable Rate;
provided, however, that with respect to the first such late payment in each calendar year, Landlord shall not assess the Late
Charge and interest shall not accrue if such delinquent payment of Rent is made on or before the tenth (10 th ) day following 
Tenant’s receipt of such notice. Payment of such Late Charge will not excuse the untimely payment of Rent. Any Late Charge
and other amounts charged hereunder shall constitute Additional Rent.
  
                                                                   -6-
     




           2.7 On the Commencement Date, in consideration of the payment of the sum of One Dollar ($1.00), Landlord shall
transfer to Tenant (or cause to be transferred to Tenant) good and marketable title in and to the furniture, fixtures and
equipment set forth on Schedule 2.7-A to this Lease (the “ Furnishings ”), and Landlord shall deliver the Furnishings to Tenant
in the Premises. Tenant will accept the Furnishings in “as is” condition as of the Commencement Date, without any other
representations or warranties by Landlord. Tenant shall pay any sales tax due in connection with the transfer of ownership of
the Furnishings to Tenant. On the Commencement Date, Landlord shall deliver to Tenant a bill of sale with respect to the
Furnishings in the form attached hereto as Schedule 2.7-B .

            2.8(a) Subject to the limitations set forth below, at least seven hundred (700) parking spaces shall be made available to 
Tenant and Tenant’s visitors at the Office Complex in the parking garage and parking lot (collectively, “ Parking Facilities ”).
Tenant agrees that Landlord does not assume any responsibility for any damage or loss to any vehicle parked in the Parking
Facilities, and any property located therein, or for any injury sustained by any person in or about the Parking Facilities, other
than any of same arising from the negligence or willful misconduct of Landlord or its agents, employees or contractors.

                 (b) Tenant shall have the exclusive right to park in the Parking Facilities during the initial Term and any
Renewal Term which parking rights shall be without charge during the initial Term and which parking rights shall be subject to
the reasonable use of the Parking Facilities by Landlord (including Landlord’s agents, employees and contractors) in performing
Landlord’s duties and exercising Landlord’s rights under this Lease. During any Renewal Term, Tenant shall pay to Landlord as
Additional Rent a monthly parking charge for each parking space at the Parking Facilities in an amount equal to the charge that
third party parking garage operators or parking garage tenants are then charging for monthly parking at Comparable Buildings
(the “ Parking Costs ”). At the time the Renewal Rate is determined, the parties shall also determine the Parking Costs and, if
necessary, use the same arbitration procedure set forth in Section 2.3(d) to resolve any dispute with respect to the amount of 
the Parking Costs.

         2.9 Landlord shall pay to Tenant an allowance in the amount of Six Million Six Hundred Thirty-Nine Thousand Seven
Hundred Eighty Dollars ($6,639,780) (the “ Allowance ”) on the Commencement Date. Tenant shall have the right to retain or use
the Allowance for any purpose(s) as Tenant shall determine in Tenant’s sole discretion.

        3. Delivery, Use and Occupancy of Premises .

the Premises in “AS IS” condition except that the Premises shall be broom clean and Landlord shall deliver the Premises subject
to the provisions of Section 7.3 (“ Delivery Condition ”), and subject to any Punch List Work. Landlord shall use commercially
reasonable good faith efforts (including, if necessary, litigation) to cause Sallie Mae to surrender the Premises in the Sallie Mae
Delivery Condition. Landlord shall not be required to perform any work, install any fixtures or equipment or render any services
to make the Building or the Premises ready or suitable for Tenant’s occupancy; provided, however, Landlord shall, at
Landlord’s expense, use commercially reasonable efforts to complete any
  
                                                                 -7-
Punch List Work within thirty (30) days following the Commencement Date. Tenant’s possession of the Premises or any portion
thereof shall constitute Tenant’s acceptance of the Premises and acknowledgement that the Premises is in the Delivery
Condition, except for any Punch List Work. “ Punch List Work ” means any work required to put the Premises in Delivery
Condition (including, without limitation, as provided in Section 7.3 ). Within five (5) Business Days after the Commencement 
Date, Landlord and Tenant shall meet at the Premises and mutually create a list of any Punch List Work. In the event Landlord
fails to timely perform and complete all Punch List Work, Tenant may (but shall not be required to) perform and complete such
unperformed Punch List Work at Landlord’s sole cost and expense. Landlord shall reimburse Tenant for the reasonable third-
party costs and expenses actually incurred by Tenant in performing such Punch List Work, together with interest at the
Applicable Rate, within thirty (30) days following Tenant’s demand therefor. In the event Landlord fails to so reimburse Tenant,
Tenant may deduct such amounts and interest from the next installments of Fixed Rent payable by Tenant hereunder until such
costs and expenses have been paid in full.

           3.2 Subject to the other provisions of this Section 3 , the Premises may be used and occupied by Tenant and any
other Permitted Users from time to time for general and executive offices together with such other uses as are normally
incidental and related to such office use in Comparable Buildings, including, without limitation, parking in the Parking Facilities,
storage, computer and other electronic data processing operations, computer and software labs, data centers, employee lounges
and training rooms, mail rooms, dining facilities, kitchens, pantries, vending machines, fitness facility, meeting rooms and all
other business lawful facilities which Tenant reasonably considers necessary or desirable in the conduct of its business (any
such use, a “ Permitted Use ”); provided , however , that Tenant shall not use the Premises or any part thereof, or permit the
Premises or any part thereof to be used in any manner that would (i) violate any Legal Requirements, (ii) cause structural injury 
to the Building, (iii) make void or voidable, or make it difficult to obtain at standard cost Virginia standard form fire insurance, 
with extended coverage, or liability, elevator, boiler or other insurance customarily carried by prudent operators of Comparable
Buildings, (iv) constitute a public or private nuisance, or (v) materially and adversely affect the value of the Building (other than 
ordinary wear and tear).

           3.3 If any governmental license or permit (including any amendment to the non-residential use permit for the Building)
shall be required for the proper and lawful conduct of Tenant’s business in the Premises or any part thereof, Tenant, at
Tenant’s sole cost and expense, shall duly procure and thereafter maintain such license or permit and, upon request, shall
deliver a copy of the same to Landlord, all prior to undertaking the use that necessitates such license or permit. Tenant shall
comply with the material terms and conditions of such licenses or permits. At Tenant’s sole cost and expense, Landlord shall
cooperate with Tenant in connection with obtaining any such governmental license or permit (including any permit required in
connection with any Alterations) or any application by Tenant for any amendment or modification to the Building’s non-
residential use permit, and shall reasonably promptly execute and deliver any applications, reports or related documents as may
be requested by Tenant in connection therewith, provided that Tenant will reimburse Landlord for the actual out of pocket
costs and expenses incurred by Landlord in connection with such cooperation within thirty (30) days after written demand 
therefor, accompanied by reasonably satisfactory documentation of such costs and expenses.
  
                                                                 -8-
     




        4. Real Property Tax Payments .
           4.1 Landlord shall pay all Taxes to the appropriate taxing authorities when due. Tenant will pay such Taxes to
Landlord in accordance with Section 4.2 hereof. Landlord shall prepare and file all tax reports required by governmental
authorities which relate to Taxes and Tenant shall cooperate with Landlord by providing any information required by Landlord
in order to do so. Provided that Tenant shall have paid such Taxes to Landlord in accordance with Section 4.2 , if Landlord shall
fail to pay to the appropriate taxing authorities any Taxes when due, then Tenant may, upon notice to Landlord, pay such
unpaid Taxes, together with interest and penalties due with respect thereto, and Landlord shall reimburse Tenant therefor,
together with interest at the Applicable Rate, within thirty (30) days following demand. In the event Landlord fails to so 
reimburse Tenant, Tenant may deduct such amounts from the next installments of Fixed Rent payable by Tenant hereunder until
such amounts have been paid in full.

           4.2 Landlord shall provide Tenant, not later than one (1) month prior to the commencement of each Tax Year, 
Landlord’s written reasonable estimate (a “ Tax Statement ”) of the Taxes payable by Tenant during such Tax Year (“ Estimated
Taxes ”). Subject to Tenant’s receipt of a Tax Statement, commencing on the first Rent Payment Date of such Tax Year and
continuing on each subsequent Rent Payment Date thereafter for the remainder of such Tax Year, Tenant shall pay into escrow
as designated by Landlord (or any Superior Mortgagee) one-twelfth (1/12 th ) of the amount of Estimated Taxes due during such 
Tax Year. Not later than sixty (60) days after the end of each Tax Year in which Tenant made payments of Estimated Taxes, 
Landlord shall deliver to Tenant a written statement setting forth the actual Taxes for such Tax Year (“ Actual Taxes ”), together
with reasonable supporting documentation (including copies of tax bills issued by the applicable Governmental Authorities). To
the extent that Actual Taxes exceed Estimated Taxes for any Tax Year (or portion thereof), Tenant shall pay to Landlord, as
Additional Rent, on the Rent Payment Date next succeeding Tenant’s receipt of Landlord’s notice of Actual Taxes (provided
that if such next Rent Payment Date is less than thirty (30) days after Tenant’s receipt of Landlord’s notice, then Tenant may
make such payment on the following Rent Payment Date), the amount of such deficiency or if the Term hereof has expired or
been terminated, within thirty (30) days after Landlord’s written request therefor. To the extent that Estimated Taxes exceed
Actual Taxes for any Tax Year, Tenant may offset the amount of such overpayment from the amount of Fixed Rent due on the
Rent Payment Date(s) next succeeding Tenant’s receipt of Landlord’s notice of Actual Taxes or if the Term hereof has expired
or been terminated, Landlord shall refund such overpayment to Tenant within thirty (30) days of Landlord’s delivery of the
written statement of Actual Taxes to Tenant. All amounts so escrowed may only be used to pay Taxes and, to the extent of the
payment, shall discharge Tenant’s obligations hereunder with respect to such payments.

          4.3 Taxes for any Tax Year during which the Term commences or expires shall be apportioned between Landlord and
Tenant so that Tenant pays its pro rata share of Taxes for such period based on the number of days which fall within the Term.
If Landlord shall receive a refund of Taxes for any Tax Year, Landlord shall promptly notify Tenant of the amount of such refund
inclusive of any interest thereon received by Landlord, and such refund (or portion of such refund with respect to a refund of
Taxes for any Tax Year during which the Term commences or expires) (after deducting any and all actual third party costs and
expenses,
  
                                                               -9-
including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees, incurred by Landlord in connection with obtaining or collecting such
refund) shall be credited to the installment(s) of Fixed Rent next payable by Tenant or shall be paid to Tenant within fifteen
(15) Business Days after receipt by Landlord. 

          4.4(a) The expiration or termination of this Lease during any Tax Year (for any part or all of which there is a Tax
payment under this Section 4 ) shall not affect the rights or obligations of the parties hereto respecting the payment of Taxes (or
any Tax Statement relating to such payment), and, except as set forth in Section 4.4(b) to the contrary, all such rights and
obligations shall survive any such expiration or termination of this Lease for a period of one (1) year. 

                  (b) The foregoing and any other provision of this Lease to the contrary notwithstanding (including, without
limitation, the provisions of Section 4.2 ), if a Tax contest is filed with respect to an applicable Tax year, all of Landlord’s and
Tenant’s respective rights and obligations with respect to the payment and reimbursement of Taxes for such Tax year shall be
extended and shall survive for a period of one (1) year after such Tax contest is finally resolved (including all appeals). 

           4.5 Upon twenty (20) days prior written notice to Landlord, Tenant shall have the right to contest, by appropriate 
legal proceedings prosecuted by Tenant in good faith and at Tenant’s sole cost and expense, the existence, amount and/or
validity of Taxes payable by Tenant under this Lease; provided that such proceedings shall operate during the pendency
thereof to stay: (a) the accumulation of penalties or interest on the collection of, or other realization upon, the Taxes so 
contested (unless Tenant agrees to pay such penalties or interest), (b) the sale, forfeiture or loss of the Office Complex, or 
(c) any interference with the use or occupancy of the Office Complex. In no event shall Tenant pursue any contest with respect 
to any Tax in such manner that may expose the Landlord or Tenant to any criminal or civil liability, penalty, or sanction (other
than interest and civil penalties that Tenant agrees to pay). Tenant further agrees that each such contest shall be promptly and
diligently prosecuted to a final conclusion, except that Tenant shall, so long as all of the conditions of this Section are at all
times complied with, have the right to attempt to settle or compromise such contest through negotiations. Tenant shall pay any
and all judgments, decrees and costs (including all reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses) in connection with any such
contest and shall, promptly after the final determination of such contest, fully pay and discharge the amounts which shall be
levied, assessed, charged or imposed or be determined to be payable therein or in connection therewith (unless such amounts
have been paid to Landlord pursuant to Section 4.2 , in which event Landlord shall pay same to the taxing authority), together
with all penalties, fines, interest, costs and expenses thereof or in connection therewith, and perform all acts within Tenant’s
control the performance of which shall be ordered or decreed as a result thereof. Notwithstanding the fact that Tenant is
prosecuting a contest of Taxes in accordance with the terms of this Section, Landlord may at any time pay, remove or cause to
be discharged the Tax thereby being contested. If Tenant shall fail to pay or cause to be paid any Taxes when finally determined
(provided that if such amounts have been paid to Landlord pursuant to Section 4.2 , Landlord shall be responsible for paying
same to the taxing authority), Landlord may, upon notice to Tenant, pay such Taxes, together with interest and penalties due
with respect thereto, and Tenant shall reimburse Landlord therefor, within thirty (30) days following demand, as Additional 
Rent.
  
                                                                 -10-
Tenant shall indemnify and hold harmless Landlord from and against any cost, claim, damage, penalty or actual expense,
including reasonable attorneys’ fees, incurred by Landlord in connection with any contest of Taxes by Tenant pursuant to this
Section. Landlord shall reasonably cooperate with Tenant in connection with any tax contest made by Tenant in accordance
with this Section, including execution of any applications as may be required in connection therewith.

     5. Alterations .
           5.1 So long as Tenant shall be in compliance with the other applicable provisions of this Section 5 in all material
respects, Tenant (including any permitted subtenant or other Permitted User of the Premises) may make any Pre-approved
Alteration without the prior written consent of Landlord; provided that not later than five (5) Business Days prior to the 
commencement of any Pre-approved Alterations, Tenant shall deliver to Landlord written notice of any such Pre-approved
Alteration project the cost of which is over $100,000. As used in this Lease, “ Pre-approved Alteration ” means any Alteration
which is not a Specialty Alteration and (i) which does not require penetration of the exterior of the Building, including the roof 
(except for penetrations Tenant is permitted to make pursuant to Sections 14 and 15 which shall be governed by those Sections
and not this Section 5 ), and (ii) which does not otherwise materially adversely affect any Building Systems and/or Structural 
Elements. “ Specialty Alterations ” shall mean any (A) Alteration consisting of the addition or removal of internal staircases, 
SCIFs, vaults, dumbwaiters, vertical transportation systems or any other Alterations which: (1) penetrate the floor or ceiling 
slabs of the Building; (2) are not customary installations for tenants occupying premises comparable to the Premises for general, 
administrative and executive office use as permitted under this Lease; and (B) Alteration to the exterior of the Building, the 
Parking Facility and/or any other improvement on the Land. All Alterations which are not Pre-approved Alterations shall be
subject to the prior written approval of Landlord in accordance with the procedures set forth in Section 5.2 .

           5.2 Not later than ten (10) Business Days prior to the commencement of any Alterations which require Landlord’s
consent, Tenant shall deliver to Landlord a written request for Landlord’s approval of such Alterations, together with plans and
specifications for such Alterations. Landlord’s approval shall not be unreasonably withheld or conditioned, and Landlord shall
respond in writing to Tenant’s request not more than ten (10) Business Days after Landlord’s receipt of Tenant’s request for
consent. If Landlord denies Tenant’s request, Landlord shall provide Tenant with a written explanation for the reasons for its
denial. If Landlord consents to Tenant’s request, Landlord shall have the right to make its consent subject to a requirement that
Tenant remove the applicable Alterations upon the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease with respect to all or any
portion of the Premises (any such Alterations so designated by Landlord for removal being “ Required Removal Alterations ”),
and restore any such portion of the Premises substantially to its condition immediately prior to such Alteration. Landlord’s
failure to respond to Tenant’s request for approval of Alterations as required above within the time period specified above shall
be deemed Landlord’s approval of Tenant’s request. Within thirty (30) days after the completion of any Alterations requiring 
Landlord’s approval, Tenant shall deliver a complete set of “as built” plans and specifications to Landlord with respect to such
Alterations in PDF format. Landlord shall not be entitled to any construction or other administration or management fee in
connection with any
  
                                                               -11-
Alterations; provided, however, that Tenant shall reimburse Landlord within thirty (30) days after Tenant receives an invoice for 
the actual third-party out of pocket costs (if any) ( e.g. , fees of Landlord’s third-party architect and MEP engineer) reasonably
incurred by Landlord in reviewing Tenant’s proposed and final Alteration plans.

           5.3 Prior to the commencement of any Alteration, Tenant shall (i) at Tenant’s expense, obtain all permits, approvals
and certificates, if any, required by any Governmental Authorities, and (ii) if requested by Landlord, furnish to Landlord 
duplicate certificates of worker’s compensation insurance (covering all persons to be employed by Tenant, and Tenant’s
contractors and subcontractors in connection with such Alteration) and comprehensive public liability insurance (including
property damage coverage) in such form, with such companies, for such periods and in such amounts consistent with
customary industry practice in Comparable Buildings, naming Landlord, and any Superior Mortgagee, as additional insureds.
Upon completion of such Alteration, Tenant, at Tenant’s expense, shall obtain certificates of final approval of such Alteration,
if any, required by any Governmental Authority and shall furnish Landlord with copies thereof; provided said Governmental
Authority does, in its normal course, provide or conduct such review or approval.

          5.4 All Alterations made by or for the benefit of Tenant shall (a) be made and performed in a good and workmanlike 
manner by contractors licensed in the Commonwealth of Virginia; (b) be made and performed in accordance with all Legal 
Requirements and the terms of this Lease and any rules and regulations reasonably promulgated by Landlord with respect to
the construction of Alterations in the Building; and (c) use materials or systems of a quality equal to or better than materials or 
systems then existing in the Building. Landlord shall, at Tenant’s sole cost and expense, cooperate with Tenant in connection
with any filings, approvals and permits reasonably requested by Tenant and required by Legal Requirements to be made by
Landlord, including execution of any applications as may be required in connection therewith.

          5.5 Subject to Section 5.2 , all Alterations in and to the Premises which may be made by Tenant during the Term and
which constitute Tenant’s Property under Section 23 shall remain the property of Tenant, and upon the Expiration Date, shall be
removed from the Premises by Tenant at Tenant’s sole option. Tenant, at Tenant’s expense, shall repair and restore in a good
and workmanlike manner any damage to the Premises and/or the Building caused by Tenant’s removal of Required Removal
Alterations and of such Alterations that constitute Tenant’s Property. If Tenant fails to so remove any of Tenant’s Property
and/or any Required Removal Alterations, the same shall be deemed abandoned and Landlord may remove and dispose of
same, and repair and restore any damage caused thereby, at Tenant’s expense.

          5.6 Tenant shall not, directly or indirectly, create or otherwise cause, and shall promptly discharge, at Tenant’s
expense, any lien, attachment, title retention agreement or claim upon the Premises created or caused by or through Tenant.
Any mechanic’s or materialmen’s lien filed against the Premises for work claimed to have been done for, or materials claimed to
have been furnished to, Tenant or any Permitted User, shall be discharged by Tenant within thirty (30) days after Tenant 
receives written notice thereof, at Tenant’s expense, by payment or filing the bond required by law.
  
                                                                -12-
     




        6. Management, Maintenance and Repairs; Capital Replacements .
           6.1 Subject to the provisions of Section 3.1 (regarding Landlord’s obligation to perform Punch List Work), Section 7.3 
(regarding Landlord’s obligations with respect to compliance with Legal Requirements to the extent set forth in said Section),
Section 10 (generally regarding fire and other casualties) and Section 11 (generally regarding condemnation) to the contrary,
Tenant, at Tenant’s expense, shall operate, manage, maintain, repair and replace (if necessary) the Office Complex and all
portions thereof (including, without limitation, the Building, the Common Areas, the Structural Elements, the Building Systems
and restrooms of the Building), all in accordance with all Legal Requirements and to a standard not less than the standard to
which Comparable Buildings are normally operated, managed, maintained, repaired and components thereof replaced (the “ 
Operating Standard ”), reasonable wear and tear, casualty and condemnation excepted. Tenant shall perform Tenant’s
obligations under this Section 6.1 at Tenant’s expense, except to the extent (i) such expense is incurred due to damage caused in 
whole or in part by the negligence or willful misconduct of Landlord (including Landlord’s agents, employees and contractors),
in which case Landlord shall pay all reasonable third-party expenses so incurred to Tenant within thirty (30) days after 
Landlord’s receipt of an invoice and reasonable supporting documentation therefor, and (ii) of Landlord’s reimbursement
obligations under Section 6.4 . In the event Landlord fails to timely make any payment required to be made pursuant to the
foregoing clause (i) or fails to timely satisfy Landlord’s reimbursement obligations under Section 6.4 , Tenant may deduct such
amounts, together with interest thereon at the Applicable Rate, from the next installments of Fixed Rent payable by Tenant
hereunder until such amounts have been paid in full.

           6.2(a) Subject to the provisions of Section 6.4 to the contrary regarding Landlord’s reimbursement obligations with
respect to certain Capital Improvements, Tenant, at Tenant’s expense, shall contract directly for the provision of all services and
supplies to the Office Complex (including, without limitation, property management, cleaning and janitorial, landscaping, pest
control, snow removal, security, Structural Elements and Building System maintenance and window cleaning) with vendors
approved in advance in writing by Landlord, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed, under
service contracts that are terminable without penalty or premium by Tenant upon thirty (30) days prior written notice to such 
vendor. Tenant shall deliver a copy of each service and supply contract (and each amendment thereto) to Landlord within ten
(10) days after such contract (or amendment) is entered into. 

                 (b) Tenant shall have the right, at Tenant’s sole option, to use any or all of the lobby, cafeteria, fitness facilities
and conference center portions of the Premises for the uses made of such facilities as of the Commencement Date, or Tenant
may convert the use of any or all of such facilities to another use (and may make, subject to the provisions of Section 5 , such
Alterations Tenant deems necessary to effectuate such conversion(s)), provided that such different use is a Permitted Use.
Tenant shall also have the right (but not the obligation) to maintain and staff a security guard and/or reception desk in the
lobby of the Building.

           6.3 In the event Landlord reasonably determines that Tenant is not operating, managing, maintaining, repairing or
replacing (if necessary) the Premises materially in accordance with the Operating Standard (an “ Operating Failure ”), Landlord
shall deliver a
  
                                                                  -13-
written notice to Tenant stating with specificity such Operating Failure, and Tenant shall have a period of thirty (30) days from 
the date of Tenant’s receipt of such notice (or such longer period of time as may be reasonably necessary provided that Tenant
shall promptly commence to remedy such Operating Failure within such thirty (30) day period) to remedy such Operating 
Failure. In the event Tenant shall fail to timely remedy the Operating Failure set forth in Landlord’s written notice, Landlord shall
have the right to remedy such Operating Failure after providing Tenant with ten (10) days’ advance written notice of Landlord’s
intention to do so, and Tenant shall reimburse Landlord for all actual and reasonable costs incurred by Landlord in remedying
such Operating Failure within thirty (30) days after Tenant receives an invoice and reasonable supporting documentation 
therefor. In addition, if Landlord remedies one or more Operating Failures pursuant to this Section 6.3 two (2) or more times 
during the Term of this Lease (including during any Renewal Term), Landlord shall have the right, as Landlord’s sole and
exclusive remedy, to remedy such Operating Failure as aforesaid and/or to notify Tenant in writing (an “ Operation Transition
Notice ”) that Landlord will thereafter assume responsibility for the operation, management, maintenance, repair and
replacement (if necessary) of the Office Complex in accordance with the provisions of Schedule 6.3 except as otherwise set forth
in Section 1(b) of said Schedule 6.3. In the event Landlord delivers an Operation Transition Notice in accordance with the 
provisions of this Section, commencing on the sixtieth (60 th ) day following Tenant’s receipt of such Operation Transition
Notice (the “ Operation Transition Date ”) the provisions of Schedule 6.3 shall apply with respect to the operation,
management, maintenance, repair and replacement (if necessary) of the Office Complex and the payment of the costs and
expenses thereof.

           6.4 If, in fulfilling Tenant’s obligations under this Lease, Tenant makes any capital improvements, capital repairs,
capital replacements or other capital expenditures (collectively, “ Capital Improvements ”), Tenant shall pay the costs of such
Capital Improvements as and when due to the applicable vendor or contractor and if the useful life of such Capital Improvement
exceeds the then remaining portion of the Term, Landlord shall reimburse Tenant within thirty (30) days after Landlord’s receipt
of an invoice and reasonable supporting documentation in an amount equal to such cost multiplied by a fraction, the numerator
of which is the useful life of such Capital Improvement minus the then unexpired portion of the Term and the denominator of
which is the useful life of such Capital Improvement; provided, however, if the Term is thereafter renewed, Tenant shall
reimburse Landlord within thirty (30) days after Tenant’s receipt of an invoice for the portion of the cost of such Capital
Improvement theretofore paid by Landlord to Tenant that was attributable to such Renewal Term. In addition, if the Capital
Improvement is made to any Structural Elements, Landlord shall reimburse Tenant within thirty (30) days after Landlord’s
receipt of an invoice and reasonable supporting documentation in an amount equal to 100% of such Capital Improvement cost.
The foregoing notwithstanding, (A) Landlord shall have no obligation to reimburse Tenant for any costs incurred by Tenant 
arising from (i) any damage caused in whole or in part by the negligence or willful misconduct of Tenant or Tenant’s agents,
employees, contractors, invitees or licensees; (ii) Tenant’s breach of this Lease; and/or (iii) Tenant’s need or desire to make
Capital Improvements that the landlords of Comparable Buildings would not normally make at such landlord’s expense ( e.g. , if
Tenant desires that the electric utility provider install new oversized electric lines to the Building so Tenant can operate special,
non-standard equipment, Landlord would have no obligation to reimburse Tenant for any costs incurred in connection
therewith); and (B) Landlord shall pay one hundred percent (100%) (without any contribution 
  
                                                                -14-
from Tenant) of any costs (i) arising from any damage caused in whole or in part by the negligence or willful misconduct of 
Landlord or Landlord’s agents, employees, or contractors. For purposes of this Section, the useful life of a Capital Improvement
shall be the time the Capital Improvement in question is reasonably capable of fulfilling its intended purpose with adequate,
routine maintenance, as reasonably determined by Landlord.

          6.5 Landlord shall have no obligation to provide any supplies and/or services to the Office Complex including,
without limitation, any heating, ventilation and air conditioning, utility, cleaning or janitorial services; provided, however, that if
Landlord delivers an Operation Transition Notice to Tenant pursuant to Section 6.3 , from and after the Operation Transition
Date, each of Landlord’s and Tenant’s obligations with respect to such services. shall be as set forth on Schedule 6.3.

           6.6 Not later than September 30 th of each year during the Term, Landlord and Tenant shall have the Office Complex
inspected by a reputable engineer licensed in the Commonwealth of Virginia, having experience in the maintenance and repair of
Comparable Buildings and such engineer shall be selected by Landlord and reasonably approved by Tenant (the “ Designated
Engineer ”). The Designated Engineer shall inspect the Office Complex for the purposes of confirming that the Office Complex
is then being maintained and repaired in accordance with the Operating Standard and to determine what additional maintenance,
repairs and replacements, if any, may be reasonably necessary during the next calendar year in order for the Office Complex to
be in compliance with the Operating Standard. Tenant shall perform, or cause to be performed, such replacements and such
reasonable repairs and maintenance that the Designated Engineer determines must be performed in order to maintain, repair and
replace, if necessary, the Office Complex or components thereof in accordance with the Operating Standard; provided, however,
that if Landlord delivers an Operation Transition Notice to Tenant pursuant to Section 6.3, from and after the Operation 
Transition Date, Landlord shall perform, or cause to be performed, such replacements and such reasonable repairs and
maintenance except to the extent any of same is the responsibility of Tenant pursuant to Section 1(b) of Schedule 6.3. The costs 
and expenses for the Designated Engineer shall be paid by Tenant.

     7. Compliance with Legal Requirements .
           7.1 Tenant, at Tenant’s expense (except to the extent of Landlord’s reimbursement obligations under Section 6.4 ),
shall comply with all Legal Requirements with respect to the Office Complex including, without limitation, Legal Requirements
relating to Tenant’s use and occupancy of the Premises, Tenant’s conduct of its business or operations therein, the Structural
Elements, the Common Areas and any Building Systems, whether or not such compliance requires work which is structural or
non-structural, ordinary or extraordinary, foreseen or unforeseen. Each of Tenant and Landlord shall give prompt notice to the
other of any notice it receives of any violation of any Legal Requirements with respect to the Office Complex or the use or
occupation thereof. Tenant shall pay all reasonable out-of-pocket costs and expenses actually incurred by, and all the fines,
penalties and damages which may be imposed upon, Landlord by reason of or arising out of Tenant’s failure to fully and
promptly comply with and observe the provisions of this Section 7.1 .
  
                                                                  -15-
           7.2 Tenant, at Tenant’s expense, may contest, by appropriate proceedings prosecuted diligently and in good faith, the
validity or applicability to the Office Complex of any Legal Requirement, provided that:

                 (a) Landlord shall not be subject to a bona fide threat of criminal penalty or to prosecution for a crime, or any
other fine or charge (unless Tenant agrees in writing to indemnify, defend and hold Landlord harmless from and against such
non-criminal fine or charge), nor shall the Office Complex, or any part thereof, be subject to a bona fide threat of being
condemned or vacated by reason of such contest;

                 (b) Tenant shall keep Landlord reasonably advised as to the status of such proceedings; and

                  (c) such proceedings shall operate during the pendency thereof to stay (i) enforcement of the Legal 
Requirement so contested, (ii) the sale, forfeiture or loss of the Office Complex and any portion thereof caused by Tenant’s
failure to comply with such Legal Requirement, (iii) any interference with the use or occupancy of the Office Complex in 
accordance with the terms of this Lease, or (iv) the cancellation or increase in the rate of any insurance policy or a statement by 
the carrier that coverage will be denied.

           7.3 Landlord represents and warrants to Tenant that, to Landlord’s actual knowledge as of the Effective Date, the
Premises are not in violation of any Legal Requirements. In the event the foregoing representation and warranty is not true and
correct as of the Effective Date, Landlord shall, at Landlord’s sole cost and expense, take such action and perform such work as
may be required to make such representation and warranty true and correct, and same shall be deemed to be Punch List Work
for the purposes of this Lease. If, after the Effective Date and prior to the Commencement Date, Sallie Mae or Landlord takes
any action that causes any portion of the Premises to be in violation of any Legal Requirements and Landlord receives written
notice of such violation, Landlord shall, at Landlord’s sole cost and expense, take such action and perform such work as may be
required to cure such violation and such work shall be deemed to be Punch List Work for the purposes of this Lease.

     8. Subordination, Nondisturbance and Attornment .
           8.1 This Lease is subject and subordinate to each and every Superior Mortgage with respect to which Tenant
receives an executed Superior Mortgagee SNDA (defined below), and which subordination shall be subject to the terms set
forth in such Superior Mortgagee SNDA.

          8.2 It shall be a condition to the subordination of this Lease to any Superior Mortgage that hereafter encumbers the
Premises that Landlord shall have delivered to Tenant a commercially reasonable subordination, non-disturbance and
attornment agreement, executed and acknowledged by the holder of such Superior Mortgage, as lender, in favor of Tenant (a “ 
Superior Mortgagee SNDA ”), which Superior Mortgagee SNDA shall provide that (i) provided that Tenant performs all of its 
obligations under this Lease, Tenant’s right to occupy the Premises shall not be disturbed by the transferee of the Office
Complex or any part thereof in the event any foreclosure proceeding is prosecuted or completed or in the event the Office
Complex,
  
                                                                -16-
any part thereof or Landlord’s interest therein is transferred by foreclosure, by deed in lieu of foreclosure or otherwise (each, a “ 
Foreclosure Event ”), (ii) in the event of any Foreclosure Event, Tenant shall attorn to the transferee and shall recognize such 
transferee as the landlord under this Lease for the unexpired balance (and any renewals, if exercised) of the Term of this Lease
upon the terms and conditions set forth in this Lease, and (iii) such transferee shall assume all of Landlord’s future obligations
including, without limitation, the obligation to cure any then ongoing non-monetary default of Landlord after a reasonable time
period after such transferee becomes the owner of the Office Complex but only to the extent such non-monetary default is
reasonably curable by such transferee, and shall pay any refunds or credits due to Tenant and arising under this Lease from
and after the Foreclosure Event.

          8.3 Landlord represents and warrants to Tenant that no Superior Mortgage exists as of the Effective Date.

     9. Insurance Requirements .
           9.1 Neither Landlord nor Tenant shall violate, or permit the violation of, any condition imposed by any property
insurance policy which applies to the Office Complex, nor commit or permit any violation of the policies of insurance carried by
the other party with respect to the Office Complex, and shall not do anything, or permit anything to be done, or keep or permit
anything to be kept in the Office Complex which could result in the termination of any of such policies, which would increase
the property or other casualty insurance rate on the Office Complex or the property therein over the rate which would otherwise
then be in effect or which would result in insurance companies of good standing refusing to insure the Office Complex or any of
such property in amounts customarily maintained for Comparable Buildings.

          9.2 Landlord shall carry and maintain the Landlord insurance coverages listed on Schedule 9 to this Lease and such
additional or substitute coverages as are from time to time maintained by landlords of Comparable Buildings or required by any
Superior Mortgagee.

          9.3 Tenant shall carry and maintain the Tenant insurance coverages listed on Schedule 9 to this Lease and such
additional or substitute coverages as are from time to time maintained by tenants of comparable size to Tenant (both in terms of
Tenant’s financial size as well as the size of the Premises) in Comparable Buildings.

          9.4 Landlord or Tenant, as applicable, shall pay as they become due all premiums for the insurance required to be
carried by such party by this Section 9 , shall renew or replace each policy and deliver to the other party evidence of the
payment of the full premium therefor or installment then due at least ten (10) days prior to the expiration date of such policy. 
Tenant or Landlord shall provide the other party with evidence of insurance within ten (10) days of receipt of a request thereof 
by the other party.

           9.5 In the event Landlord or Tenant, as applicable, shall fail to maintain the insurance as herein required, the other
party shall have the right, but not the obligation, to acquire such insurance and pay the premiums therefor, which actual
premium amounts shall be payable to such other party within thirty (30) days of receipt of an invoice therefor, with reasonable 
backup documentation.
  
                                                                -17-
     10. Damage or Destruction by Casualty .
           10.1 If during the Term the Office Complex shall be partially or totally damaged or destroyed by fire or other casualty,
then the following shall apply:

                  (a) Tenant shall give written notice to Landlord of any damage or casualty occurring during the Term with
respect to the Office Complex. Within sixty (60) days following such damage or casualty, Tenant shall provide Landlord with a 
written notice setting forth the percentage of the Building (or other improvements comprising the Office Complex) that has been
rendered untenantable (or, with respect to other improvements comprising the Office Complex, unusable for their intended
purpose) by reason of such damage or casualty, and the reasonable estimate of the time that is needed to substantially
complete the repair of such damage or casualty, in each case as determined by a registered architect or licensed professional
engineer designated by Tenant and reasonably acceptable to Landlord (the “ Restoration Estimate ”).

                  (b) If the Restoration Estimate states that (i) more than twenty-five percent (25%) of the rentable area of the 
Building is rendered untenantable due to damage or destruction to the Building, or (ii) the reasonable estimate of the time 
needed to substantially complete the repair of such casualty or damage is more than three hundred sixty-five (365) days from 
the date of the casualty or damage, then either Tenant or Landlord may terminate the entire Lease by giving the other party
notice to such effect as soon as practicable under the circumstances and in any event within sixty (60) days after the delivery of 
the Restoration Estimate, and upon the date that is thirty (30) days following the giving of such notice, the Term and the estate 
hereby granted shall terminate and those provisions that expressly survive the termination or earlier expiration of this Lease
shall so survive. If neither party terminates this Lease pursuant to this Section 10.1(b) , then Landlord shall commence and
diligently continue to perform all restoration and repairs of the Building as set forth in Section 10.1(c) . For purposes of this
Section 10 , the term “ untenantable ” shall mean inaccessible or unusable for the normal conduct of Tenant’s business in a
manner which is consistent with Tenant’s use prior to the occurrence of the casualty in question and the Tenant ceases the
operation of its business within such portions of the Building (or the portion thereof deemed “untenantable,” as the case may
be) other than to the limited extent of Tenant’s security personnel for the preservation of Tenant’s property, Tenant’s insurance
adjusters, and/or a minimal number of Tenant’s employees for file retrieval, planning of temporary relocation and other disaster
recovery functions.

                  (c) If the Restoration Estimate states that (i) twenty-five percent (25%) or less of the rentable area of the 
Building is rendered untenantable due to damage or destruction to the Building and (ii) the reasonable estimate of the time 
needed to substantially complete the repair of such casualty or damage is less than three hundred sixty-five (365) days from the 
date of the casualty or damage, then Landlord shall commence and diligently continue to perform all restoration/repairs to the
Building and any insurance proceeds received by Tenant therefor shall be assigned or delivered to Landlord for such purpose.
If the foregoing restoration/repairs (or the restoration/repairs undertaken after the failure of any party to terminate this Lease
pursuant to Section 10.1(b) ) to the Building by Landlord are not completed within three hundred sixty-five (365) days after the 
date of the casualty or damage, then Tenant may terminate this lease by giving written notice thereof to Landlord within thirty
(30) days after the expiration of such three hundred sixty-five (365) day period (unless the restoration/repairs are completed 
prior to delivery of such notice to Landlord) with such termination to be effective on the date that is thirty (30) days after the 
date of such notice from Tenant.
  
                                                                -18-
                 (d) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, if any portion of the improvements (other than
the Building) comprising the Office Complex are the subject of a casualty or damage, and such casualty or damage (i) materially 
interferes with Tenant’s use and occupancy of, or access to, the Premises as contemplated under this Lease, and (ii) the 
reasonable estimate of the time needed to substantially complete the repair of such casualty or damage is more than three
hundred sixty-five (365) days from the date of the casualty or damage, then Tenant may terminate the entire Lease by giving 
Landlord notice to such effect as soon as practicable under the circumstances and in any event within sixty (60) days after the 
delivery of the Restoration Estimate, and upon the date that is thirty (30) days following the giving of such notice, the Term and 
the estate hereby granted shall terminate and those provisions that expressly survive the termination or earlier expiration of this
Lease shall so survive. If Tenant does not elect to terminate this Lease pursuant to this Section 10.1(d) , or if the damage or
casualty to such other improvements comprising the Office Complex is of such a nature that Tenant is not entitled to terminate
this Lease pursuant to this Section 10.1(d) , then Landlord shall commence and diligently continue to perform all
restoration/repairs to such other improvements comprising the Office Complex and any insurance proceeds received by Tenant
therefor shall be assigned or delivered to Landlord for such purpose.

           10.2 If this Lease shall be terminated by Tenant pursuant to this Section 10 , then Tenant shall assign to Landlord all
insurance proceeds (less costs of collection) relating to tenant improvements of Tenant constructed after the Commencement
Date, if any, from policies being maintained by Tenant pursuant to Schedule 9 . In the event of any termination of the Lease,
Rent shall be prorated as of the date of the casualty or damage. In the event of any casualty or damage following which this
Lease is not terminated, but the casualty or damage is such so as to make the Premises or any part thereof untenantable or
inaccessible for five (5) consecutive Business Days or more, and Tenant ceases to use such untenantable area to conduct 
Tenant’s business, then Rent shall abate proportionately (based on the number of square feet rendered untenantable or
inaccessible) as of the first (1 st ) business day after the date of the casualty or damage until the earlier of the date that Tenant 
again uses such space to conduct Tenant’s business or the date that the restoration/repairs which Landlord is obligated to
perform hereunder have been substantially completed.

     11. Condemnation .
          11.1 If the entire Premises shall be acquired or condemned for any public or quasi-public use or purpose, this Lease
and the Term shall end as of the date of the vesting of title in the condemning authority with the same effect as if said date were
the Expiration Date.

           11.2 If less than the entire Premises shall be acquired or condemned for any public or quasi-public use or purpose,
then the following provisions shall apply:

                  (a) Except as otherwise provided herein, from and after the date of the vesting of title in the condemning
authority, this Lease and the Term shall continue in full force and effect except that this Lease and the Term shall end as to the
acquired or condemned portion of the Premises and Rent shall be reduced by the proportion which the area so acquired or
condemned bears to the total area of the Premises immediately prior to such acquisition or condemnation.
  
                                                                  -19-
                (b) If the acquisition or condemnation materially interferes with Tenant’s use and occupancy of, or access to,
the Premises as contemplated under this Lease, and, by reason of such acquisition or condemnation, Tenant cannot reasonably
be expected to maintain its business and operations therein, then Tenant, at Tenant’s option, may terminate this Lease effective
immediately upon written notice to Landlord delivered no later than thirty (30) days next following the date of vesting of title in 
the condemning authority, and the Rent shall be apportioned as of the date of such termination, and any prepaid portion of
Rent for any period after such date shall be refunded by Landlord to Tenant.

                 (c) If a part of the Premises shall be acquired or condemned and this Lease and the Term shall not be terminated
pursuant to the foregoing provisions of this Section 11.2 , Landlord shall remediate that part of the Premises not so acquired or
condemned to a premises separately demised from the space so taken or condemned to then Building standard conditions such
that Tenant may maintain its business and operations therein, exclusive of Tenant’s Property.

           11.3 If all or a portion of a Common Area is acquired or condemned for any public or quasi-public use or purpose, and
if such acquisition or condemnation materially interferes with Tenant’s use and occupancy of, or access to, the Building and/or
the Parking Garage as contemplated under this Lease, and, by reason of such acquisition or condemnation, Tenant cannot
reasonably be expected to maintain its business and operations therein, then Tenant, at Tenant’s option, may terminate this
Lease effective immediately upon written notice to Landlord delivered no later than thirty (30) days next following the date of 
vesting of title in the condemning authority, and the Rent shall be apportioned as of the date of such termination, and any
prepaid portion of Rent for any period after such date shall be refunded by Landlord to Tenant. If this Lease is not terminated
pursuant to this Section 11.3 , then Landlord shall remediate that part of the Common Areas not so acquired or condemned to
the then existing standard conditions of the Building.

           11.4 In connection with any acquisition or condemnation of the Parking Facility for any public or quasi-public use
or purpose that results in the reduction of the number of parking spaces available for use by Tenant within the Parking Facility, 
in an amount that is more than ten percent (10%) of the number of such parking spaces (a) required to be provided pursuant to  
Section 2.8(a) , or (b) required to be provided for the Premises pursuant to the applicable Legal Requirements at the time of such 
acquisition or condemnation, then either (i) Landlord shall arrange for substitute parking reasonably proximate to the Premises 
but in no event more than four blocks away, or (ii) if Landlord does not arrange for such substitute parking, monthly Fixed Rent 
shall be reduced by an amount equal to the number of parking spaces below the greater of the number required by clause (a) or 
(b) above, multiplied by the then current market rent for parking spaces at Comparable Buildings. 
  
                                                                -20-
           11.5 In the event of any acquisition or condemnation described in this Section 11 , Landlord shall be entitled to
receive the entire award for any such acquisition, condemnation and/or restoration, Tenant shall have no claim against Landlord
or the condemning authority for the value of any unexpired portion of the Term and Tenant hereby expressly assigns to
Landlord all of its right in and to any such award. Nothing contained in this Section 11.5 shall be deemed to prevent Tenant
from making a separate claim in any condemnation proceedings for the then value of any furniture, furnishings and fixtures
installed by and at the expense of Tenant and included in such taking, plus moving expenses.

     12. Assignment, Subletting and Mortgaging .
         12.1 Tenant may enter into Pre-approved Assignments without the prior written consent of Landlord. All Non-
Preapproved Assignments shall require the prior written consent of Landlord, as provided in Section 12.2 below.

          12.2 If Tenant desires to enter into a Non-Preapproved Assignment, then Tenant shall submit to Landlord with
respect to the proposed assignee (a “ Non-Preapproved Assignee ”) the following specific information (collectively, the “ 
Assignment Review Criteria ”): (A) the identity of the Non-Preapproved Assignee, (B) the most recent financial statement or 
other reasonable evidence of financial capacity of such Non-Preapproved Assignee, (C), if applicable, the credit rating of such
Non-Preapproved Assignee, and (D) the form of the proposed Assignment Agreement. Tenant shall also provide to Landlord 
such additional information as reasonably necessary to evaluate the proposed Non-Preapproved Assignee and reasonably
requested by Landlord after Landlord’s receipt of the Assignment Review Criteria. Landlord, in its reasonable discretion, shall
approve or disapprove the Non-Preapproved Assignment no later than the tenth (10 th ) Business Day following receipt of the 
Assignment Review Criteria and, if Landlord has so requested, the additional information (which response shall include, in the
event of a disapproval, the reason(s) for such disapproval). Landlord shall be deemed to have acted reasonably in granting or
withholding consent if such grant or disapproval is based on the review of the Assignment Review Criteria applying
commercially prudent and reasonable business judgment, and in no event shall Landlord be required to consent to a proposed
assignment if at the date such consent is requested a monetary or material non-monetary Event of Default exists. Any purported
assignment in violation of this Section 12.2 shall be null and void. Landlord’s failure to respond to Tenant’s request for consent
of a Non-Preapproved Assignment within the time period specified above shall be deemed Landlord’s approval of Tenant’s
request.

           12.3 Tenant shall have the right, upon fifteen (15) days prior written notice to Landlord but with no prior consent or 
approval of Landlord being required or necessary, to enter into one or more subleases for any portion of the Premises with (i) an 
Affiliate of Tenant or a Permitted Assign for all or any portion of the Premises, or (ii) any other third parties that sublease, in the 
aggregate with all other then subtenants (exclusive of any subtenants that are Affiliates of Tenant), 110,663 or fewer rentable
square feet provided that such subtenant under this clause (ii) is consistent in kind and character with the tenants normally 
found in Comparable Buildings (each, a “ Pre-approved Sublet ”). All subleases other than subleases pursuant to Pre-approved
Sublets shall require Landlord’s prior consent or approval, which consent or approval shall not be unreasonably withheld,
delayed or conditioned; provided that in no event shall
  
                                                                 -21-
Landlord be required to consent to a proposed sublease if at the date such consent is requested an Event of Default exists.
Landlord shall respond to Tenant’s request for consent hereunder within ten (10) days of Landlord’s receipt of Tenant’s
request (which response shall include, in the event of a denial of the request, the reason(s) for such denial). Landlord’s failure
to respond to Tenant’s request within the time period specified above shall be deemed Landlord’s approval of Tenant’s
request. Any purported sublease in violation of this Section 12.3 shall be null and void.

          12.4 If Tenant assigns all of its rights and interest under this Lease, the assignee under such assignment shall
expressly assume all the obligations of Tenant hereunder, actual or contingent, arising on or after the date of such assignment,
by a written instrument delivered to Landlord at the time of such assignment in form and substance reasonably acceptable to
Landlord. Unless Landlord shall specifically agrees to the contrary in writing, no assignment or sublease shall affect or reduce
any of the obligations of Tenant hereunder, and all such obligations of Tenant shall continue in full force and effect as
obligations of a principal and not as obligations of a guarantor, as if no assignment or sublease had been made. No assignment
or sublease shall impose any additional obligations on Landlord under this Lease.

          12.5 Any provision herein to the contrary notwithstanding, the following terms and conditions will apply to any
subleasing or assignment by Tenant hereunder:

                  (a) With respect to any subleasing or assignment that requires Landlord’s consent, Tenant shall, upon
demand, reimburse Landlord for all reasonable out-of-pocket expenses actually incurred by Landlord in connection with such
proposed assignment or sublease, including any investigations as to the acceptability of the proposed assignee or subtenant (“ 
Transferee ”) and all out-of-pocket legal costs reasonably incurred in connection with the granting of any requested consent,
such legal fees not to exceed, through December 31, 2013, $5,000 per proposed assignment or sublease, but without limitation 
(other than that the legal fees must be reasonable) if the proposed assignment or sublease includes unusual issues;

                 (b) the form of the proposed assignment or sublease agreement shall be reasonably satisfactory to Landlord;

                  (c) each sublease shall be subject and subordinate to this Lease and to the matters to which this Lease is or
shall be subordinate; and Tenant and each Transferee shall be deemed to have agreed that upon the occurrence and during the
continuation of an Event of Default hereunder, Tenant has hereby assigned to Landlord, and Landlord may, at its option, accept
such assignment of, all right, title and interest of Tenant as sublandlord under such sublease, together with all modifications,
extensions and renewals thereof then in effect and such Transferee shall, at Landlord’s option, attorn to Landlord pursuant to
the then executory provisions of such sublease, except that Landlord shall not be (A) liable for any previous act or omission of 
Tenant under such sublease, (B) subject to any counterclaim, offset or defense not expressly provided in such sublease, which 
theretofore accrued to such Transferee against Tenant, (C) bound by any previous modification of such sublease not 
consented to by Landlord or by any prepayment of more than one month’s rent, (D) bound to return such Transferee’s security
deposit, if any, except to the extent Landlord shall receive actual possession of such deposit and such Transferee shall be
entitled to the return of all or any portion of such deposit under the terms of its sublease, or (E) obligated to make any payment 
to or on behalf of such
  
                                                                -22-
Transferee, or to perform any work in the subleased space or the Building, or in any way to prepare the sublet space for
occupancy, beyond Landlord’s obligations under this Lease. The provisions of this Section shall be self-operative, and no
further instrument shall be required to give effect to this provision, provided that the Transferee shall execute and deliver to
Landlord any instruments Landlord may reasonably request to evidence and confirm such subordination and attornment;

                  (d) each sublease shall terminate upon any termination of this Lease, unless Landlord elects in writing to cause
the subtenant to attorn to and recognize Landlord as the lessor under such sublease, whereupon such sublease shall continue
as a direct lease between the subtenant and Landlord upon all the terms and conditions of such sublease;

               (e) each sublease shall bind the subtenant to all applicable covenants contained in this Lease with respect to
subleased premises to the same extent as if the subtenant were the Tenant; and

                 (f) each sublease shall not grant renewal rights to subtenant beyond the Term (as the same may be renewed)
without the prior written consent of Landlord.

          12.6 Tenant shall, within ten (10) days after the execution and delivery of any assignment or sublease, deliver a 
duplicate original copy thereof to Landlord.

          12.7 Other than any sublease or assignment to an Affiliate of Tenant or a Permitted Assign, if any sublease or
assignment (whether by operation of law or otherwise) provides that the subtenant or assignee thereunder is to pay any
Assignment Profit (defined below), then Tenant shall pay to Landlord fifty percent (50%) of any such Assignment Profit 
applicable to the sublease or assignment no later than thirty (30) days after any receipt thereof by Tenant. Acceptance by 
Landlord of any payments due under this Section shall not constitute approval by Landlord of any sublease or assignment, nor
shall such acceptance waive any rights of Landlord hereunder. As used herein, the term “ Assignment Profit ” means any
amount in excess of the sum of (a) the rental and other charges due under this Lease plus (b) the reasonable, out-of-pocket
expenses (including brokerage commissions, marketing and advertising expenses, legal fees, costs to prepare the space for a
subtenant, allowances, rent abatements, free rent periods and other concessions) which Tenant reasonably incurred in
connection with the procurement of such sublease or assignment, whether such excess be in the form of an increased monthly
or annual rental, or a lump sum payment (and if the subleased or assigned space does not constitute the entire Premises, the
existence of such excess shall be determined on a pro-rata basis); provided, however, that “ Assignment Profit ” shall not
include (1) any non-rent consideration paid in connection with a business sale or merger or other similar business transaction
for which the assignment is necessary but fulfilling a larger purpose than solely the assignment, or (2) any bona fide payments 
(which are not disguised rent) for furniture and/or office equipment or other personal property or services accompanying the
assignment or sublease).

          12.8 Subject to Tenant’s rights set forth in Section 35 , Landlord may assign, mortgage, pledge, hypothecate or
otherwise encumber or transfer its interest in this Lease, as landlord hereunder and as owner of the Office Complex, at any time
to anyone, in its sole discretion, without the prior written consent of the Tenant or any successor in interest to the
  
                                                                -23-
Tenant. Landlord shall deliver to Tenant notice of any such assignment, mortgage, pledge or other transfer of this Lease or the
Office Complex no later than five (5) Business Days following the effective date thereof, provided that Landlord shall use 
commercially reasonable efforts to deliver notice of same to Tenant within ten (10) days prior to any such transfer. 

     13. Utilities . Tenant shall make all arrangements for service and pay as and when due for all electrical power, water and
other utilities used and consumed in connection with all or any portion of the Office Complex, including all surcharges, taxes,
fuel adjustments and sales taxes and charges thereon and other sums payable with respect thereto, directly to the service
provider or, to the extent incurred by Landlord following Landlord’s delivery to Tenant of an Operation Transition Notice
pursuant to Section 6.3 , as Management Costs (as defined on Schedule 6.3 ) pursuant to Schedule 6.3 . Tenant shall also be
responsible for paying all telephone, television, radio, cable, satellite and other communications services provided to the
Premises, including all surcharges, taxes and sales charges thereon and other sums payable in respect thereof; such items to be
promptly paid directly by the Tenant to the applicable provider thereof.

     14. Roof Rights .
             (a) Tenant will operate, repair, maintain or replace all of the following equipment currently located on the external roof
areas of the Building: (i) air conditioning and ventilation units serving the Building, including all related connections, ducts, 
vents, installation frames and related equipment, (ii) emergency power generation systems and equipment serving the Building 
and/or the Building Systems, including all related wiring, cables, power connectors, installation frames and related equipment,
and (iii) any other similar mechanical equipment serving all or any portion of the Building (collectively, the “ Rooftop Equipment
”), all in a manner consistent with the Operating Standard.

           (b) Subject to applicable Legal Requirements and to Landlord’s reasonable screening requirements, Tenant, at
Tenant’s sole cost and expense, shall have the right to install on the roof, operate, repair and maintain and may remove from and
on the roof supplemental HVAC, telecommunications and similar equipment and apparatus, including, without limitation,
antennae, microwave dishes and radio antenna and satellite communication dishes and apparatus, together with all related
ducts, wiring, cables, power connectors, installation frames and related equipment (“ Additional Rooftop Equipment ”). Tenant
shall be responsible for procuring all licenses or permits as may be required from Governmental Authorities for the use or
operation of the Additional Rooftop Equipment. All Additional Rooftop Equipment shall be installed, operated, repaired,
maintained, replaced and removed so as not to void any roof warranty. All such Additional Rooftop Equipment shall, upon the
Expiration Date, be deemed the property of Tenant and Tenant shall at the expiration or earlier termination of the Term hereof,
remove all such Additional Rooftop Equipment in accordance with all Legal Requirements and Section 23.2 , repairing all
damage caused by such removal and without voiding or adversely affecting any roof warranty then in effect.
  
                                                                 -24-
     15. Building Name and Signage .
           15.1 Tenant shall have the right to install, maintain, replace, and remove signage of any type within the Premises
including signage on the monument sign for the Office Complex, on the exterior of the Building and on the roof of the Building
during the Term (and any renewals thereof) without the consent or approval of Landlord, provided that (i) such signage does 
not violate any applicable Legal Requirements, (ii) such signage or the installation or removal thereof does not void or 
adversely affect any roof warranty or otherwise cause any material damage to any Structural Element of the Building, and
(iii) any such monument and exterior signage has been approved in writing by Landlord, such approval not to be unreasonably 
withheld, conditioned or delayed, prior to installation or replacement thereof and prior to any change thereto.

          15.2 All of Tenant’s signs shall be deemed Tenant’s Property. At the expiration or earlier termination of the Term
hereof, Tenant shall, at Tenant’s sole cost and expense, remove any monument and exterior signs, and repair and restore in a
good and workmanlike manner any damage to the Premises and/or the Building caused by such removal. Tenant shall have no
obligation to remove any signs that are within the interior of the Premises. If Tenant fails to so remove any of Tenant’s
monument or exterior signage, the same shall be deemed abandoned and Landlord may remove and dispose of same, and repair
and restore any damage caused thereby, at Tenant’s expense, and without accountability to Tenant.

      16. Access to Premises . Landlord or any Superior Mortgagee or any other party designated by Landlord, and their
respective agents, shall have the right to enter the Premises at reasonable times and upon reasonable prior notice (which shall
be at least twenty-four (24) hours except in the case of an emergency in which immediate action must be taken to prevent 
imminent harm to persons or property when no such notice shall be required) to: (i) examine and inspect the Premises (including 
to confirm Tenant’s compliance with its obligations under this Lease), (ii) show the Premises to prospective purchasers, 
mortgagees, lessors or lessees (but to prospective lessees of any space only in the last eighteen (18) months of the Term (as the 
same may be renewed pursuant to Section 2.2 ) and their respective agents and representatives), (iii) to make such repairs, 
alterations, replacements or additions to the Premises (A) which Landlord may elect to perform following Tenant’s failure to
perform or in the event of an emergency, or (B) for which Landlord is responsible, (iv) to comply with any Legal Requirements, 
and (v) to exercise Landlord’s remedies upon the occurrence and during the continuation of an Event of Default. Landlord
agrees that it will not unreasonably disrupt Tenant or Tenant’s business because of such activities and that any Person
accessing the Premises shall, at Tenant’s option, be escorted at all times by a designated representative of Tenant (except in the
event of an emergency if no such representative is available).

     17. Non-Residential Use Permit .
           17.1 Tenant shall not at any time use or occupy the Premises in violation of the non-residential use permits at such
time issued for the Building. In the event that any applicable Governmental Authority shall hereafter contend or declare by
notice, violation, order or in any other manner whatsoever that the Premises are used by Tenant (or any party claiming by,
through or under Tenant) for a purpose which is a violation of such non-residential use permit, Tenant shall, upon written
notice from Landlord or any Governmental Authority, promptly discontinue such use of the Premises.
  
                                                               -25-
           17.2 Throughout the Term, Landlord shall not change the non-residential use permits for the Building in a manner
which shall adversely affect Tenant’s use of the Premises for any Permitted Use, or Tenant’s ability to obtain a valid
construction permit for any Alteration in the Premises, unless required by Legal Requirements. At Tenant’s request, Landlord
shall cooperate with Tenant, at Tenant’s sole cost and expense, in connection with any reasonable changes to the non-
residential use permits for the Building required by Tenant for any reasonable use of the Premises by Tenant, provided such
use is otherwise permitted pursuant to the terms of this Lease and will not materially and adversely affect the fair market value
of the Building.

     18. Events of Default .
           18.1 The occurrence of any of the following events beyond any applicable grace, cure or notice period set forth below
shall be an “ Event of Default ” hereunder:

                  (a) if Tenant shall fail to pay any installment of Fixed Rent, regularly scheduled Additional Rent or Additional
Rent that is not regularly scheduled but for which an invoice or statement shall have been previously delivered to Tenant by
the terms of this Lease, regardless of the reason for such failure, when due, and such failure shall continue unremedied for a
period of at least ten (10) days after receipt of written notice of default provided by or on behalf of Landlord (such notice to be 
delivered in accordance with Section 28 );

                 (b) if Tenant shall default in the observance or performance of any other term, covenant or condition of this
Lease to be observed or performed by Tenant and Tenant shall fail to remedy such default within thirty (30) days after notice by 
Landlord to Tenant of such default, or if such default is of such a nature that it cannot be remedied with due diligence within
such thirty (30) day period, such period shall be extended for such longer period as is reasonably necessary, provided that 
Tenant shall commence to remedy within such initial thirty (30) day period and shall thereafter diligently and in good faith 
proceed to remedy such default;

                 (c) [intentionally omitted];

                 (d) if Tenant shall (A) voluntarily be adjudicated a bankrupt or insolvent, (B) seek or consent to the 
appointment of a receiver or trustee for itself or for the Premises, (C) file a petition seeking relief under the bankruptcy or other 
similar laws of the United States, any state or any jurisdiction, (D) make a general assignment for the benefit of creditors, or 
(E) admit in writing that it is generally unable to pay its debts as they mature; 

                   (e) if a court shall enter an order, judgment or decree appointing, without the consent of Tenant, a receiver or
trustee for it or for the Premises or approving a petition filed against Tenant which seeks relief under the bankruptcy or other
similar laws of the United States, any state or any jurisdiction, and such order, judgment or decree shall remain undischarged or
unstayed sixty (60) days after it is entered; 

                 (f) if Tenant shall be liquidated or dissolved or shall begin proceedings towards its liquidation or dissolution;
or
  
                                                                 -26-
                 (g) if the estate or interest of Tenant in the Premises shall be levied upon or attached in any proceeding and
within sixty (60) days of such levy or attachment such process shall not be vacated, discharged, bonded off or adequate 
reserves therefor established or the estate or interest of Tenant in the Premises is about to be sold or transferred as a result of
any such proceeding.

           18.2 If Landlord has defaulted hereunder with respect to any of Landlord’s obligations as set forth in this Lease,
Tenant shall give written notice to the Landlord of such default. Such default shall be cured by Landlord within ten (10) days 
with respect to monetary defaults and, with respect to non-monetary defaults, thirty (30) days of such written notice, or if such 
non-monetary default is of such a nature that it cannot be remedied with due diligence within such thirty (30) day period, such 
period shall be extended for such longer period as is reasonably necessary, provided that Landlord shall commence to remedy
within such initial thirty (30) day period and shall thereafter diligently and in good faith proceed to remedy such default. If any 
such default is not timely cured, Tenant shall have such rights and remedies as are set forth in this Lease and as are available at
law or in equity on account thereof. Further, all rights and remedies of Tenant under this Lease shall be cumulative and shall not
be exclusive of any other rights and remedies available to Tenant at law or in equity.

     19. Remedies for Default .
          19.1 Upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, Landlord shall have the right at its option to do any one or more of
the following without further demand upon or notice to Tenant:

                 (a) Landlord may give Tenant notice of Landlord’s intention to terminate this Lease on a date specified in such
notice, which date shall not be less than five (5) Business Days after the giving of such notice. On such date, unless the Event 
of Default for which the surrender is required has been cured by Tenant, the Term and the estate hereby granted and all rights
of Tenant hereunder shall expire and terminate as if such date were the date fixed for the expiration of the Term, but Tenant shall
remain liable for all its obligations hereunder through the date fixed for the expiration of the Term, including its liability for the
payment of Fixed Rent and Additional Rent as hereinafter provided and all provisions of this Lease that shall survive the
termination or early expiration of this Lease shall so survive.

            (b) With or without termination of this Lease, Landlord or Landlord’s agents may immediately or at any time thereafter
re-enter the Premises or any part thereof and dispossess Tenant and any other occupants of the Premises, by summary
proceedings or otherwise as permitted by applicable Legal Requirements, and remove effects located thereon, without being
liable to indictment, prosecution or damages therefor, to the end that Landlord may possess, have, hold and enjoy the Premises.
The word “re-enter”, as used herein, is not restricted to its technical legal meaning.

         (c) After any repossession of any of the Premises whether or not this Lease is terminated, Landlord shall undertake
reasonable efforts to re-let the Premises or any part thereof to any Person for such term (which may be greater or less than the
period which would otherwise have constituted the balance of the Term), for such rent and on such other conditions (which
may
  
                                                                 -27-
include concessions or free rent) and for such uses as Landlord, in its reasonable discretion, may determine and Landlord shall
proceed to collect and receive any rents payable by reason of such re-letting. The rents received from such re-letting shall be
applied (A) first to the reasonable costs and expenses of such re-letting and collection actually incurred by or on behalf of
Landlord, including any renovations and alterations of the Premises, reasonable attorneys’ fees and any actual real estate
commissions paid, and (B) thereafter toward payment of all sums due or to become due to Landlord hereunder in such order as 
Landlord deems appropriate.

         (d) Notwithstanding anything set forth herein to the contrary, in the event of any Operating Failure, Landlord’s sole
remedy for such Operating Failure shall be as set forth in Section 6.3 .

           19.2 Tenant hereby waives the service of any notice of intention to re-enter or to institute legal proceedings to that
end which may otherwise be required to be given under any present or future law. Tenant, on its own behalf and on behalf of all
Persons claiming through or under Tenant, including all creditors, does further hereby waive any and all rights which Tenant
and all such Persons might otherwise have under any present or future law to redeem the Premises, or to re-enter or repossess
the Premises, or to restore the operation of this Lease, after (i) Tenant shall have been dispossessed by a judgment or by 
warrant of any court or judge, (ii) any re-entry by Landlord whether or not this Lease has been terminated, or (iii) any expiration 
or termination of this Lease and the Term, whether such dispossess, re-entry, expiration or termination shall be by operation of
law or pursuant to the provisions of this Lease. In the event of a breach or threatened breach by Tenant, or any persons
claiming through or under Tenant, of any term, covenant or condition of this Lease, Landlord shall have the right to enjoin such
breach and the right to invoke any other remedy allowed by law or in equity as if re-entry, summary proceedings and other
special remedies were not provided in this Lease for such breach. The right to invoke the remedies set forth in this Lease are
cumulative and shall not preclude Landlord from invoking any other remedy allowed at law or in equity.

          19.3 If this Lease and the Term shall expire or terminate and Landlord shall re-enter or take possession of all or any
portion of the Premises as provided in Section 19.1 , or Landlord shall re-enter or take possession of all or any portion of the
Premises by or under any summary proceeding or any other action or proceeding, whether this Lease is terminated or not, then
the following shall apply:

                   (a) Tenant shall pay to Landlord all Fixed Rent and Additional Rent payable under this Lease for the period up
to the earlier to occur of (i) the date upon which this Lease and the Term shall have expired or terminated, and (ii) the date of any 
re-entry or taking of possession upon all or any portion of the Premises by or on behalf of Landlord, as the case may be.

                 (b) Tenant shall be liable for and shall pay to Landlord, as damages, any deficiency (the “ Deficiency ”)
between the amount of the Fixed Rent and Additional Rent for the period which otherwise would have constituted the then
unexpired portion of the Term and the net amount, if any, of all fixed and additional rents collected under any re-letting of all or
any portion of the Premises effected pursuant to the provisions of Section 19.1 for any part of such period. Any Deficiency
shall be calculated after first deducting from the amount of any such
  
                                                                -28-
rents collected under any re-letting the aggregate amount of Landlord’s reasonable costs and expenses actually incurred by or
on behalf of Landlord as described in Section 19.1(c) . Any Deficiency shall be paid in monthly installments by Tenant on the
days specified in this Lease for payment of installments of Fixed Rent, and Landlord shall be entitled to recover from Tenant
such Deficiency monthly as the same shall arise or from time to time and no suit to collect the amount of the Deficiency for any
month or months shall prejudice Landlord’s right to collect the Deficiency for any subsequent month or months by a similar
proceeding.

                  (c) Whether or not Landlord shall have collected any monthly or other Deficiency as aforesaid, Landlord shall
be entitled to recover from Tenant, and Tenant shall pay to Landlord, on demand, in lieu of any further Deficiency as and for
liquidated and agreed final damages, a sum equal to the amount by which the Fixed Rent for the period which otherwise would
have constituted the unexpired portion of the Term exceeds the then fair and reasonable rental value of the Premises for the
same period, both discounted to present worth at the annual rate of five percent (5%) per annum, less the aggregate amount of 
Deficiencies theretofore collected by Landlord pursuant to the provisions of Section 19.3(b) for the same period; if, before
presentation of proof of such liquidated damages to any court, commission or tribunal, the Premises, or any part thereof, shall
have been re-let by Landlord for the period which otherwise would have constituted the unexpired portion of the Term, or any
part thereof, the amount of rent and additional rent reserved upon such re-letting shall be deemed, prima facie, to be the fair and
reasonable rental value for the part or the whole of the Premises so re-let during the term of the re-letting; provided, such re-
letting is an arm’s length bona fide transaction.

            19.4 If the Premises, or any part thereof, shall be re-let together with other space in the Building, the rents collected or
reserved under any such re-letting and the expenses of any such re-letting shall be equitably apportioned for the purposes of
Section 19.3 . Tenant shall in no event be entitled to any rents collected or payable under any re-letting, whether or not such
rents shall exceed the Fixed Rent reserved in this Lease. Fixed Rent as referred to in Section 19.3(a) means the Fixed Rent in
effect immediately prior to the date upon which this Lease and the Term shall have expired and come to an end, or the date of re-
entry upon the Premises by Landlord, as the case may be. All rights and remedies of Landlord set forth herein are in addition to
all other rights and remedies available to Landlord hereunder or at law or in equity. All rights and remedies available to Landlord
hereunder or at law or in equity are expressly declared to be cumulative. The exercise by Landlord of any such right or remedy
shall not be deemed an election of remedies or prevent the concurrent or subsequent exercise of any other right or remedy. No
delay in the enforcement or exercise of any such right or remedy shall constitute a waiver of any default by Tenant hereunder or
of any of Landlord’s rights or remedies in connection therewith. Landlord shall not be deemed to have waived any default by
Tenant hereunder unless such waiver is set forth in a written instrument signed by Landlord. If Landlord waives in writing any
default by Tenant, such waiver shall not be construed as a waiver of any covenant, condition or agreement set forth in this
Lease except as to the specific circumstances described in such written waiver. Notwithstanding anything contained herein to
the contrary, no shareholder, member, director or partner from time to time of Tenant, nor any officer, agent, or employee of
Tenant shall be charged personally with any liability by, or held liable to, any party hereto or by any Person claiming through or
under such party under any term or provision of this Lease, or by virtue of its execution or attempted execution, or due to any
breach, attempted breach or alleged breach thereof.
  
                                                                  -29-
     




           19.5 Notwithstanding any provisions of this Lease to the contrary, except with regard to the damages specifically
provided under Section 22.2 , Landlord shall not be liable to Tenant, and Tenant shall not be liable to Landlord, for indirect,
consequential, special, punitive, exemplary, incidental or other like damages (including, without limitation, damages to Landlord
for lost profits or opportunities, or the loss by foreclosure, deed in lieu, or otherwise, of all or any portion of Landlord’s interest
in the Building and/or Land), even if arising from any act, omission or negligence of such party or from the breach by such party
of its obligations under this Lease.

          19.6 If either Landlord or Tenant desires to bring an action against the other in connection with this Lease, such
action shall be brought in the federal courts located in the Eastern District of Virginia, Alexandria Division, or state or local
courts located in Fairfax County, Virginia. Landlord and Tenant consent to the jurisdiction of such courts and waive any right to
have such action transferred from such courts on the grounds of improper venue or inconvenient forum.

          19.7 Landlord hereby waives the benefit of all statutory or common law liens Landlord may have on any of Tenant’s
tangible or intangible personal property located in the Premises, including, without limitation, the right to distrain for rent.

        20. Fees and Expenses .
           If Tenant shall default under this Lease beyond any applicable grace, cure or notice periods, Landlord may, after
notice to Tenant, (a) perform the same for the account of Tenant if the same arises out of any obligation owed by Tenant to a 
third party, or (b) make any reasonable expenditure or incur any obligation for the payment of money in connection with any 
obligation of Tenant owed to Landlord, including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys’ fees and disbursements in
instituting, prosecuting or defending any action or proceeding, and the cost thereof, with interest thereon at the Applicable
Rate, shall be deemed to be Additional Rent hereunder and shall be paid by Tenant to Landlord within thirty (30) days of 
delivery of a demand therefor, together with any reasonably required substantiating bills, statements or other documentation.

           If Landlord shall default under this Lease beyond any applicable grace, cure or notice periods, Tenant may, after
notice to Landlord, (a) perform the same for the account of Landlord if the same arises out of any obligation owed by Landlord 
to a third party, or (b) make any reasonable expenditure or incur any obligation for the payment of money in connection with 
any obligation of Landlord owed to Tenant, including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys’ fees and disbursements in
instituting, prosecuting or defending any action or proceeding, and the cost thereof, with interest thereon at the Applicable
Rate, shall be paid by Landlord to Tenant within thirty (30) days of delivery of a demand therefor, together with any reasonably 
required substantiating bills, statements or other documentation. In the event Landlord fails to timely pay such amounts to
Tenant, Tenant may deduct such amounts from the next installments of Fixed Rent payable by Tenant hereunder until such
amounts have been paid in full.
  
                                                                 -30-
     




     21. No Representations by Landlord . Tenant acknowledges and agrees that Landlord has not made and is not making any
warranties or representations with respect to the Premises or the Building and Tenant, in executing and delivering this Lease, is
not relying upon any warranties, representations, promises or statements of Landlord with respect to the Premises or the
Building, except to the extent that the same are expressly set forth in this Lease. All understandings and agreements between
the parties are merged in this Lease, which alone fully and completely expresses the agreement of the parties, and which is
entered into after full investigation, neither party relying upon any statement or representation not embodied in this Lease and
any other written agreements made concurrently herewith.

        22. Expiration, Surrender and Holdover .
          22.1 Upon the expiration or other termination of this Lease, Tenant shall quit and surrender to Landlord the Premises,
vacant, broom clean and in good order and condition, ordinary wear and tear, damage by casualty and condemnation, damage
caused by any Landlord Party or their respective contractors, agents or employees, and any other damage for which Tenant is
not responsible under the terms of this Lease excepted, and Tenant shall remove such of its property as may be required
pursuant to Section 5 and Section 23 hereof; this obligation shall survive the expiration or sooner termination of the Term.

           22.2 If Tenant fails to immediately surrender the Premises on the Expiration Date, Tenant shall become a tenant by the
month at Fixed Rent equal to one hundred fifty percent (150%) of the amount of Fixed Rent in effect during the last month of the 
Term, plus the actual Additional Rent, and upon the same terms and conditions as contained in this Lease. Landlord’s
acceptance of hold-over Rent shall not constitute liquidated damages or impair Landlord’s remedies upon the occurrence of an
Event of Default, including Landlord’s right to sue Tenant for actual damages directly incurred as a result of Tenant’s holdover
hereunder, but shall be considered in determining Landlord’s actual damages; provided, however, that Landlord (i) hereby 
waives all damages, losses, expenses, and costs arising from Tenant’s holdover in the Premises for the first sixty (60) days after 
the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease (but Tenant shall be liable for the Fixed Rent and Additional Rent described in
this Section 22.2 during such sixty (60) day period), and (ii) shall not be entitled to recover damages from Tenant arising from 
Landlord’s loss of another tenant for space in the Building because of Tenant’s hold-over unless at least two (2) months prior 
to the expiration of the Term Landlord has notified Tenant that Landlord has executed a lease agreement with a third-party
tenant for all or a portion of the Premises.

        23. Fixtures, Equipment and Other Property .
           23.1 All fixtures, ventilation and air-conditioning equipment and appurtenances attached to or built into the Premises
as of the Commencement Date or during the Term, whether or not by or at the expense of Tenant shall be and remain a part of
the Premises and shall, upon the Expiration Date, be deemed the property of Landlord (without representation or warranty by
Tenant) and shall not be removed by Tenant, except as otherwise provided in Section 23.3 .

             23.2 [intentionally omitted]
  
                                                               -31-
     




            23.3 All of the following (collectively, the “ Tenant’s Property ”) shall be and shall remain the property of Tenant and
may be removed by Tenant at any time during the Term (i) owned by Tenant, any Affiliate of Tenant or by any other Person 
(other than Landlord) for which Tenant is responsible, all furniture, furnishings, office and other movable equipment and other
sections or items of movable personal property, in each case located in the Premises, (ii) to the extent owned by Tenant or by 
any other Person (other than Landlord) for which Tenant is responsible, all partitions and furniture systems not permanently
affixed to the Premises, all special or other cabinet work not permanently affixed to the Premises, all pantry equipment, business
and trade fixtures, moveable machinery and equipment not permanently affixed to the Premises, office equipment and
communications equipment, including, without limitation, telephone systems and security systems, and any other similar
equipment, property or items which are installed in the Premises by Tenant or any other Permitted User and in each case are not
permanently affixed to the Premises and can be removed without damage to the Structural Elements in any material respect, and
(iii) the Furnishings, which in each case can be removed without damage to the Structural Elements in any material respect. On 
or before the Expiration Date, Tenant, at its expense, will remove from the Premises all of Tenant’s Property and Tenant shall
repair any damage to the Premises or the Building resulting from any installation and/or removal of Tenant’s Property. Any
other items of Tenant’s Property which shall remain in the Premises thereafter may be deemed to have been abandoned, and in
such case such items may be retained by Landlord as its property or disposed of by Landlord at Tenant’s cost, without
accountability, in such manner as Landlord shall reasonably determine.

     24. Quiet Enjoyment . So long as no Event of Default has occurred and is then continuing, Tenant may peaceably and
quietly enjoy the Premises without hindrance, ejection or molestation by Landlord, or any Person lawfully claiming through or
under any of the foregoing, subject, nevertheless, to the terms and conditions of this Lease.

        25. No Waiver Provisions .
          25.1 No act or thing done by Landlord or Landlord’s agents during the Term shall be deemed an acceptance of a
surrender of the Premises, and no agreement to accept such surrender shall be valid unless in writing signed by Landlord.

            25.2 The failure of Landlord to seek redress for violation of, or to insist upon the strict performance of, any covenant
or condition of this Lease shall not prevent a subsequent act, which would have originally constituted a violation, from having
all of the force and effect of an original violation. The receipt by Landlord of Fixed Rent, Additional Rent or any other item of
Rent with knowledge of the breach of any covenant of this Lease shall not be deemed a waiver of such breach. No provision of
this Lease shall be deemed to have been waived by a party, unless such waiver be in writing signed by such party. No payment
by Tenant or receipt by Landlord of a lesser amount than the monthly Rent herein stipulated shall be deemed to be other than
on account of the earliest stipulated Rent, or as Landlord may elect to apply same, nor shall any endorsement or statement on
any check or any letter accompanying any check or payment as Rent deemed an accord and satisfaction, and Landlord may
accept such check or payment without prejudice to Landlord’s right to recover the balance of such Rent or pursue any other
remedy in this Lease provided.
  
                                                                -32-
     




    26. Affirmative Waivers . LANDLORD AND TENANT HEREBY WAIVE TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY ACTION,
PROCEEDING OR COUNTERCLAIM BROUGHT BY EITHER AGAINST THE OTHER ON ANY MATTER WHATSOEVER
ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH THIS LEASE, THE RELATIONSHIP OF LANDLORD AND
TENANT, TENANT’S USE OR OCCUPANCY OF THE PREMISES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY CLAIM OF
INJURY OR DAMAGE, AND ANY EMERGENCY AND OTHER STATUTORY REMEDY WITH RESPECT THERETO.

        27. Unavoidable Delays .
           27.1 This Lease and the obligation of Tenant to pay Rent hereunder and perform all of the other covenants and
agreements hereunder on the part of Tenant to be performed shall in no way be affected, impaired or excused because Landlord
is unable to fulfill any of its obligations under this Lease expressly or impliedly to be performed by Landlord or because
Landlord is unable to make, or is delayed in making any repairs, additions, alterations, improvements or decorations or is unable
to supply or is delayed in supplying any equipment or fixtures, in each case if Landlord is prevented or delayed from so doing
by reason of any Unavoidable Delay; and, except as set forth in Section 27.3 to the contrary, Landlord’s obligation to perform or
observe any term, condition, covenant or agreement under this Lease shall be suspended during such time that such
performance or observance is prevented or delayed by reason of any Unavoidable Delay.

         27.2 Except as set forth in Section 27.3 to the contrary, Tenant’s obligation to perform or observe any term, condition,
covenant or agreement under this Lease shall be suspended during such time that such performance or observance is
prevented or delayed by reason of any Unavoidable Delay.

          27.3 The provisions of Sections 27.1 and 27.2 to the contrary notwithstanding, Unavoidable Delay shall not excuse or
delay any party’s obligation to make any payment as and when due under this Lease (including, without limitation, Tenant’s
obligation to pay Rent and Landlord’s obligation to pay the Allowance).

        28. Notices .
     Except as otherwise expressly provided in this Lease, all bills, statements, consents, notices, demands, approvals, requests
or other communications required or permitted to be given under this Lease shall be given in writing and shall be effective for all
purposes if hand delivered or sent by (a) certified or registered United States mail, postage prepaid, return receipt requested, or

Tenant agree that information relevant to this Lease and communications regarding this Lease may be exchanged via e-mail
(including e-mail with attachments in electronic imaging format ( e.g. , .pdf, .xls, .tif, .jpg, .or gif files types)) and acknowledge
that neither Landlord or Tenant has control over the performance, reliability, availability, or security of e-mail. Communication
via e-mail or facsimile shall not constitute notice under this Lease unless the communication is also sent simultaneously by a
nationally recognized overnight courier service providing a receipt (such as Federal Express) or by hand addressed as provided
above.

      29. Estoppel Certificates . Each party agrees, at any time and from time to time, as requested by the other party, within
fifteen (15) days’ of a request therefor, to execute and deliver to the other an estoppel certificate substantially in the form of
Exhibit E-1 attached hereto (if requested of Tenant) or Exhibit E-2 attached hereto (if requested of Landlord) (each, an “ Estoppel
Certificate ”), it being intended that any Estoppel Certificate delivered pursuant hereto may be relied upon by others with
whom the party requesting such certificate may be dealing and may include other certifications as reasonably requested by the
party seeking the Estoppel Certificate.

     30. Broker . Landlord and Tenant each covenant, warrant and represent that no broker was instrumental in bringing about
or consummating this Lease and that it had no conversations or negotiations with any broker concerning the leasing of the
Premises to Tenant, other than with Jones Lang LaSalle Americas (“ Landlord’s Broker ”), Cassidy Turley (“ Cassidy ”) and T3
Advisors (together, “ Tenant’s Broker ”). Tenant agrees to indemnify and hold harmless Landlord against and from any claims
for any brokerage commissions and all costs, expenses and liabilities in connection therewith, including, without limitation,
reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses, arising out of any conversations or negotiations had by Tenant with any broker other
than Landlord’s Broker and Tenant’s Broker. Landlord agrees to indemnify and hold harmless Tenant against and from any
claims for any brokerage commissions and all costs, expenses and liabilities in connection therewith, including, without
limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses, arising out of conversations or negotiations had by Landlord with any
broker including Landlord’s Broker and Tenant’s Broker. Landlord agrees to pay a commission to Landlord’s Broker in
connection with this Lease in accordance with the terms of a separate agreement between Landlord and Landlord’s Broker; and
Landlord agrees to pay a commission to Cassidy in connection with this Lease in accordance with the terms of a separate
agreement between Landlord and Cassidy. Tenant shall indemnify and hold harmless Landlord for any claims for any brokerage
commissions by T3 Advisors. The provisions of this Section shall survive the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease.
  
                                                                -35-
     31. Indemnity .
           31.1 Neither Landlord (except to the extent expressly set forth in this Lease), nor any partner, member, director, officer,
shareholder, principal, agent, servant or employee of Landlord, shall be liable to Tenant for any loss, injury or damage to Tenant
or to any other Person, or to its or their property, irrespective of the cause of such injury, damage or loss, nor shall the aforesaid
parties be liable for any damage to property of Tenant or of others entrusted to employees of Landlord or Landlord’s managing
agent (if any), nor for loss of or damage to any such property by theft or otherwise; provided, however, that nothing contained
in this Section 31.1 shall be construed to exculpate Landlord for loss, injury or damage to the extent caused by or resulting from
any of the events or matters described in Section 31.4 below. Further, neither Landlord nor any partner, member, director, officer,
principal, shareholder, agent, servant or employee of Landlord, shall be liable (i) for any such damage caused by other Persons 
in, upon or about the Building or the Premises, or caused by operations in construction of any private, public or quasi-public
work, or (ii) for consequential damages arising out of any loss of use of the Premises or any equipment, facilities or other 
property therein by Tenant or any Person claiming through or under Tenant.

            31.2 Neither Tenant (except to the extent expressly set forth in this Lease) nor any partner, member, director, officer,
shareholder, principal, agent, servant or employee of Tenant (in any case whether disclosed or undisclosed), shall be liable to
Landlord for any loss, injury or damage to Landlord or to any other Person, or to its or their property, irrespective of the cause
of such injury, damage or loss, nor shall the aforesaid parties be liable for any damage to property of Landlord, or of others
entrusted to employees of Tenant, nor for loss of or damage to any such property by theft or otherwise; provided, however,
that nothing contained in this Section 31.2 shall be construed to exculpate Tenant for loss, injury or damage to the extent
caused by or resulting from any of the events or matters described in Section 31.3 below. Further, neither Tenant, nor any
partner, director, officer, principal, shareholder, agent, servant or employee of Tenant shall be liable (i) for any such damage 
caused by other Persons in, upon or about the Building or the Premises, or caused by operations in construction of any private,
public or quasi-public work, or (ii) for consequential damages arising out of any loss of use of the Building or any equipment, 
facilities or other property of Landlord or any Person claiming through or under Landlord.

           31.3 Except to the extent caused by the negligence or willful misconduct of any Landlord Party, Tenant shall
indemnify and hold harmless Landlord and Landlord’s partners, members, directors, officers, principals, shareholders, managers,
trustees, agents and employees (each of the foregoing, a “ Landlord Party ”) from and against any and all claims for damages to
persons or property (together with all reasonable, actual out-of-pocket costs, expenses and liabilities incurred in or in
connection with each such claim or action or proceeding brought thereon, including, without limitation, all reasonable
attorneys’ fees and expenses) arising from or in connection with:

                 (a) the occupancy, conduct or management of the Premises or of any business therein, or the performance of
any of Tenant’s obligation under this Lease, in each case by or on behalf of Tenant or Tenant’s partners, members, directors,
officers, principals, shareholders, trustees, agents, employees, contractors, assignees, subtenants and licensees (each of the
foregoing, a “ Tenant Party ”), or any work or thing whatsoever done, or any condition created in the Premises during the term
of this Lease;
  
                                                                 -36-
                 (b) any act, omission (where there is an affirmative duty to act) or negligence of a Tenant Party; or

                 (c) any accident, injury or damage whatever occurring in, at or upon the Premises.

           31.4 Except to the extent caused by the negligence or willful misconduct of any Tenant Party, Landlord shall
indemnify and hold harmless Tenant and each Tenant Party from and against any and all claims for damages to persons or
property (together with all reasonable, actual out-of-pocket costs, expenses and liabilities incurred in or in connection with each
such claim or action or proceeding brought hereon, including, without limitation, all reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses)
arising from or in connection with any negligent or otherwise wrongful act or omission of Landlord or any Landlord Party or
their respective contractors, agents or employees.

           31.5 In case any action or proceeding be brought against any Landlord Party or Tenant Party indemnified hereunder
(such party, an “ Indemnified Party ”) by reason of any claim described in this Section 31 , upon notice from such Indemnified
Party to the appropriate party hereunder (such party, the “ Responsible Party ”) that is obligated to indemnify such Indemnified
Party, the Responsible Party shall resist and defend such action or proceeding by counsel reasonably satisfactory to such
Indemnified Party. Provided that the Responsible Party complies with the requirements of this Section 31.5 with respect to any
third-party claim, the Responsible Party shall not be liable for the costs of any separate counsel employed by the Indemnified
Party with respect thereto. If the issuer of any insurance policy maintained by the Responsible Party and meeting the applicable
requirements of this Lease shall assume the defense of any such third-party claim, then such Indemnified Party shall permit
such insurance carrier to defend the claim with its counsel and (i) the Indemnified Party shall not settle such claim without the 
consent of the insurance carrier (unless such settlement would relieve the Indemnified Party of all liability for which the
Responsible Party or its insurance carrier may be liable hereunder), (ii) the Responsible Party shall have the right to settle such 
claim without the consent of the Indemnified Party if Indemnified Party and its insurance carriers would be relieved of all liability
and cost in connection therewith, (iii) the Indemnified Party shall reasonably cooperate, at the Responsible Party’s expense,
with the insurance carrier in its defense of any such claim, and (iv) the Responsible Party shall not be liable for the costs of any 
separate counsel employed by the Indemnified Party. In no event shall the Responsible Party be liable for consequential or
indirect damages, except as specifically provided in Section 22.2 hereof. Nothing contained in this Section 31.5 shall be deemed
to relieve any party under this Lease of the obligation to maintain insurance in accordance with the provisions of Section 9 .

            31.6 Notwithstanding anything in this Lease to the contrary (including, without limitation, Sections 31.3 and 31.4 ),
Landlord hereby releases Tenant and each Tenant Party, and Tenant hereby releases Landlord and each Landlord Party, from all
liability for injury to any Person or damage to any property that is caused by or results from a risk which is actually insured
against or which is required to be insured against under this Lease, without regard to the negligence or misconduct of the
Person so released. All of Landlord’s and Tenant’s repair and indemnity obligations under this Lease shall be subject to the
waiver and release contained in this Section.
  
                                                                -37-
     32. Miscellaneous .
          32.1 The covenants, conditions and agreements contained in this Lease shall bind and inure to the benefit of
Landlord and Tenant and their respective heirs, distributees, executors, administrators, successors, and, except as otherwise
provided in this Lease, their assigns.

           32.2 The obligations of Landlord under this Lease shall not be binding upon Landlord named herein after the sale,
conveyance, assignment or transfer by such Landlord (or upon any subsequent landlord after the sale, conveyance,
assignment or transfer by such subsequent landlord) of its interest in the Building or the Premises, as the case may be, to the
extent that they shall accrue subsequent to the transfer of Landlord’s interest in the Building or the Premises as owner thereof
and in the event of such transfer said obligations thereafter accruing shall be expressly assumed by and binding upon each
transferee of the interest of Landlord herein named as such owner or lessee of Building or the Premises, and such transferee, by
accepting such interest, shall be deemed to have assumed such obligations accruing after transfer. Except as otherwise
expressly provided herein, the transferor shall be released from any obligations accruing prior to the transfer of its interest in
Building or Premises as owner thereof, if the transferee shall expressly assume such prior accruing obligations in a written
instrument. Neither the partners or members comprising Landlord, nor the shareholders (nor any of the partners comprising
same), partners, members, directors or officers of any of the foregoing shall be liable for the performance of Landlord’s
obligations under this Lease. Tenant shall look solely to Landlord to enforce Landlord’s obligations hereunder and shall not
seek any damages against any of the foregoing. The liability of Landlord for the performance of Landlord’s obligations
hereunder shall be limited to Landlord’s interest in the Premises (and the proceeds therefrom) and Tenant shall not look to any
other property or assets of Landlord in seeking either to enforce Landlord’s obligations under this Lease or to satisfy a
judgment for Landlord’s failure to perform such obligations.

           32.3 Except as otherwise expressly set forth in this Lease, including without limitation any right on behalf of Tenant to
terminate all or a portion of this Lease, no agreement shall be effective to change, modify, waive, release, discharge, terminate or
effect an abandonment of this Lease, in whole or in part, including, without limitation, this Section, unless such agreement is in
writing, refers expressly to this Lease and is signed by the party against whom enforcement of the change, modification, waiver,
release, discharge, termination or effectuation of the abandonment is sought.

           32.4 This Lease (including any exhibits referred to herein) contains the entire agreement between the parties with
respect to the subject matter hereof and all prior negotiations and agreements are merged into this Lease. All of the exhibits
attached hereto are incorporated in and made a part of this Lease, provided that, in the event of any inconsistency between the
terms and provisions of this Lease and the terms and provisions of the exhibits hereto, the terms and provisions of this Lease
shall control.

       32.5 This Lease shall be governed in all respects by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the
Commonwealth of Virginia, without giving effect to choice of law provisions.

          32.5 If any provision of this Lease, or its application to any person or circumstance, shall ever be held to be invalid or
unenforceable, then in each such event the remainder of this Lease or the application of such provision to any other person or
any other circumstance (other than those as to which it shall be invalid or unenforceable) shall not be thereby affected, and
each provision hereof shall remain valid and enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by law.

           32.6 The section headings used herein are inserted only as a matter of convenience and for reference and in no way
define, limit or describe the scope of this Lease nor the intent of any provision hereof.

           32.7 In the event either party takes action to enforce the provisions of this Lease, then the prevailing party in such
action shall be entitled to recover all reasonable attorneys’ fees and court costs, incurred by the prevailing party in such action.
A party is deemed to have prevailed if it obtains a final judgment or settlement in its favor.

          32.8 Time is of the essence under this Lease.

           32.9 At the request of any party hereto the other party shall cooperate with such requesting party in executing and

the requesting party. At the expiration or termination of this Lease for any reason, the parties shall cooperate in the execution of
a release of such memorandum in recordable form and shall deliver such release to Landlord.

           32.10 Any provision of this Lease to the contrary notwithstanding, Tenant shall not exercise Tenant’s right to
exercise any setoff, offset or similar right under this Lease, at law or in equity, unless (i) Tenant has given Landlord at least 
thirty (30) days prior written notice that Tenant intends to exercise such right(s) if Landlord does not pay or reimburse Tenant 
the amount demanded in such notice within such thirty (30) day period and (ii) if Tenant has not received Landlord’s payment
or reimbursement within such thirty (30) day period, Tenant shall deliver to Landlord a second thirty (30) days prior written 
notice that Tenant intends to exercise such right(s) if Landlord does not pay or reimburse Tenant the amount demanded in such
notice, which notice must state in bold print in 12 font or larger “ SECOND AND FINAL NOTICE ” at the top of the first page
of the notice.

         32.10 This Lease may be executed in two (2) or more counterparts, each of which shall constitute an original, but all of 
which, when taken together, shall constitute but one instrument.

     34. Environmental .
            34.1 Tenant, its agents, employees, contractors or invitees shall not (i) cause or permit any Hazardous Materials 
(hereinafter defined) to be brought upon, stored, used or disposed on, in or about the Office Complex, or (ii) permit the release, 
discharge, spill or emission of any Hazardous Material in or from the Premises; provided, however, the foregoing shall not
prohibit Tenant from using Hazardous Materials of a type and quantity customarily used in the operation of the Premises for the
Permitted Use ( e.g. , building cleaning fluids, ice-melt, photocopier toner, etc.) so long as such Hazardous Materials are used
and stored in accordance with all Legal Requirements. Tenant hereby agrees that it is and shall be fully responsible for all costs,
expenses, damages or liabilities (including, but not limited to clean-up and remediation costs, penalties, fines and the cost of
litigation, and including all such costs incurred by Landlord and/or any Superior Mortgagee) which may occur from the use,
storage, disposal, release, spill, discharge or emissions of Hazardous Materials by Tenant during the Term of the Lease, and
whether or not the same may be permitted by this Lease. Tenant shall defend, indemnify and hold harmless Landlord, its
mortgagees and its agents from and against any claims, demands, administrative orders, judicial orders, penalties, fines,
liabilities, settlements, damages, costs or expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable attorney and consultant fees, court
costs and litigation expenses) of whatever kind or nature, known or unknown, contingent or otherwise, arising out of or in any
way related to the use, storage, disposal, release, discharge, spill or emission of any Hazardous Material, or the violation of any
Legal Requirements with respect thereto, by Tenant, its agents, employees, contractors or invitees during the Term of this
Lease. The provisions of this Section shall be in addition to any other obligations and liabilities Tenant may have to Landlord at
law or in equity and shall survive the transactions contemplated herein or any termination of this Lease. As used in this Lease,
the term “ Hazardous Materials ” shall include, without limitation: those substances included within the definitions of
“hazardous substances”, “hazardous materials,” toxic substances,” or “solid waste” in the Comprehensive Environmental
Response Compensation and Liability Act of 1980 (42 U.S.C. §9601 et seq.) (“ CERCLA ”), as amended by Superfund
Amendments and Reauthorization Act of 1986 (“ SARA ”), the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act of 1976 (“ RCRA ”),
and the Hazardous Materials Transportation Act, and in the regulations promulgated pursuant to said laws, all as amended;
those substances listed in the United States Department of Transportation Table (49 CFR 172.101 and amendments thereto) or
by the Environmental Protection Agency (of any successor agency) as hazardous substances (40 CFR Part 302 and
amendments thereto); and any material, waste or substance which is (A) petroleum within the meaning of applicable 
environmental laws of the jurisdiction in which the Premises is located, (B) asbestos containing materials, (C) designated as a 
“hazardous substance” pursuant to Section 311 of the Clean Water Act, (33 U.S.C. § 1321) or listed pursuant to Section of the 
Clean Water Act (33 U.S.C. § 1317); or (D) (F) radioactive materials. 

          34.2 As between Landlord and Tenant only, Landlord shall be responsible for, and shall indemnify and hold Tenant
harmless from and against, all costs, expenses, damages and liabilities relating to the clean-up and remediation, and shall be
responsible for compliance with all Legal Requirements, with respect to any Hazardous Materials existing in or about the
Premises, to the extent such Hazardous Materials are not the responsibility of Tenant pursuant to Section 34.1 .
  
                                                               -40-
           34.3 Except as set forth in that certain environmental report, dated October 26, 2009, titled “Phase I Environmental Site
Assessment” and prepared by IVI Assessment Services in connection with Landlord’s acquisition of the Office Complex (a
copy of which report Landlord has delivered to Tenant), and except for Hazardous Materials of a type and quantity that are
typically found at Comparable Buildings ( e.g. , building cleaning fluids, ice-melt, photocopier toner, etc.), to Landlord’s actual
knowledge, no Hazardous Materials exist at the Premises.

     35. Purchase Option .
           35.1(a) If Landlord desires to sell the Office Complex (either directly or through the transfer of direct or indirect
ownership interests in Landlord (but subject to Section 35.4)) during the Term and there exists no monetary Event of Default 
and the Named Tenant and its Affiliates then leases and occupies in the aggregate at least seventy-five percent (75%) of the 
rentable area of the Office Complex, Landlord shall first provide written notice to the Named Tenant of Landlord’s desire to sell
the Office Complex (the “ First Offer Notice ”). The First Offer Notice shall contain (a) the purchase price at which Landlord 
would be willing to sell the Office Complex; and (b) any other major material terms with respect to the proposed sale of the 
Office Complex, which terms shall be consistent with then current market terms, all as determined by Landlord in its sole, but
commercially reasonable, discretion.

                  (b) Named Tenant shall have ten (10) Business Days after receipt of the First Offer Notice, time being of the 
essence, in which to give Landlord written notice that the Named Tenant desires to purchase the Office Complex for the
purchase price and upon the other terms set forth in the First Offer Notice (an “ Acceptance Notice ”). If the Named Tenant
timely gives an Acceptance Notice to Landlord, within ten (10) Business Days after the delivery of such Acceptance Notice to 
Landlord (the “ First Deposit Period ”), the Named Tenant shall deliver into escrow with a nationally recognized title company
selected by Tenant and reasonably acceptable to Landlord (the “ Purchase Option Escrow Agent ”) a non-refundable deposit
in the amount of ten percent (10%) of the purchase price (the “ Deposit ”); provided, however, that the Deposit (and all interest
earned thereon) will be refundable to the Named Tenant if (i) the Named Tenant delivers written notice to Landlord within ten 
(10) Business Days after the Named Tenant delivers the Deposit to the Purchase Option Escrow Agent that the Named Tenant 
did not receive the approval of the Named Tenant’s board of directors and any other required approval(s) for the purchase of
the Office Complex (collectively, the “ Required Approvals ”); or (ii) Landlord fails to satisfy its closing obligations set forth in 
Section 35.3. If the Named Tenant timely delivers an Acceptance Notice, the parties shall proceed to close on the sale of the 
Office Complex to the Named Tenant in accordance with Section 35.3, unless the Named Tenant delivers written notice to 
Landlord within ten (10) Business Days after the Named Tenant delivers the Deposit to the Purchase Option Escrow Agent that 
the Named Tenant did not receive the Required Approvals (in which event the Deposit and all interest earned thereon shall be
returned to the Named Tenant).
  
                                                                 -41-
          35.2(a) If (i) Tenant shall fail to timely deliver an Acceptance Notice, or (ii) prior to the expiration of the First Deposit 
Period referenced in Section 35.1(b) , the Named Tenant fails to deliver the Deposit into escrow with the Purchase Money
Escrow Agent, or (iii) the Named Tenant fails to obtain all of the Required Approvals in accordance with Section 35.1(b) , the
Named Tenant shall be deemed to have rejected Landlord’s proposal, in which event the provisions of Section 35.2(b) shall
apply.

                  (b) Following Tenant’s deemed rejection of Landlord’s proposal described in Section 35.2(a) or described in
Section 35.2(c) , as applicable, Landlord shall be free to sell the Office Complex to any party upon any terms and conditions that
Landlord deems acceptable in its sole and absolute discretion; provided, however, that (i) Landlord shall promptly provide the 
Named Tenant with a copy of the bid package being given to potential third party purchasers (which shall be consistent in all
material respects with the terms set forth in the First Offer Notice) and shall otherwise allow the Named Tenant in good faith to
participate on an equal footing with others in the bidding process to acquire the Office Complex; and (ii) if Landlord does not 
execute a contract of sale for the Office Complex and consummate the closing thereunder with a bona fide third-party within
nine (9) months after the Named Tenant’s actual or deemed rejection of Landlord’s proposal set forth in the First Offer Notice
pursuant to Section 35.2(a) or Section 35.2(c) , as applicable, and Landlord continues to desire (or at any time thereafter desires)
to sell the Office Complex, Landlord shall send to the Named Tenant a new First Offer Notice revised to reflect the updated
proposed sale terms. Named Tenant shall then have five (5) Business Days after receipt of the new First Offer Notice if delivered 
within eighteen (18) months of the last First Offer Notice sent to the Named Tenant; otherwise, the Named Tenant shall have ten 
(10) Business Days, time being of the essence, in which to give the Named Tenant’s Acceptance Notice to Landlord. If the
Named Tenant timely gives an Acceptance Notice to Landlord, within ten (10) Business Days after the delivery of such 
Acceptance Notice to Landlord (the “ Secondary Deposit Period ”), the Named Tenant shall deliver the Deposit into escrow
with the Purchase Option Escrow Agent; provided, however, that the Deposit (and all interest accrued thereon) will be
refundable to the Named Tenant if (i) the Named Tenant delivers written notice to Landlord within ten (10) Business Days after 
the Named Tenant delivers the Deposit to the Purchase Option Escrow Agent that the Named Tenant did not receive the
Required Approvals; or (ii) Landlord fails to satisfy its closing obligations set forth in Section 35.3. If the Named Tenant timely 
delivers an Acceptance Notice, the parties shall proceed to close on the sale of the Office Complex to the Named Tenant in
accordance with Section 35.3, unless the Named Tenant delivers written notice to Landlord within ten (10) Business Days after 
the Named Tenant delivers the Deposit to the Purchase Option Escrow Agent that the Named Tenant did not receive the
Required Approvals (in which event the Deposit and all interest earned thereon shall be returned to the Named Tenant).

                  (c) If (i) Named Tenant shall fail to timely deliver an Acceptance Notice following the receipt of the new First 
Offer Notice described in Section 35.2(b), or (ii) prior to the expiration of the Secondary Deposit Period referenced in 
Section 35.2(b) , the Named Tenant fails to deliver the Deposit into escrow with the Purchase Money Escrow Agent, or (iii) the 
Named Tenant fails to obtain all of the Required Approvals in accordance with Section 35.2(b) , the Named Tenant shall be
deemed to have rejected Landlord’s proposal, in which event all of the provisions of Section 35.2(b) shall again apply, and such
provisions shall continue to apply (and Tenant’s purchase option pursuant to this Section 35 shall remain in full force and
effect) unless and until either (1) Named Tenant shall have purchased the Office Complex pursuant to Section 35.3 , or
(2) Landlord shall have consummated the closing of the sale of the Office Complex with a bona fide third-party.
  
                                                                  -42-
          35.3 The closing under this Section 35 (the “ Closing ”) shall be on such date as Landlord and Named Tenant
mutually agree, or, absent such agreement, on the date that is thirty (30) days following the date of Tenant’s Acceptance
Notice. The Closing shall be conducted through escrow with the Purchase Option Escrow Agent, with all deliveries required
pursuant to this Section being made through the Purchase Option Escrow Agent.

                 (a) At the Closing, Landlord shall: (i) execute and deliver a special warranty deed in the form attached as 
Schedule 35.3(a)(i), conveying to Named Tenant (or its designated Affiliate) good and insurable fee simple title to the Office
Complex, free and clear of all mortgages, deeds of trust, judgments and other encumbrances (other than the encumbrances
existing on the Effective Date, those to which Named Tenant has consented in writing, those created by Named Tenant or those
that do not materially adversely affect the use or value of the Office Complex, such as customary utility and similar easements);
(ii) execute and deliver a certificate that it is not a foreign Person, plus any other affidavits or instruments reasonably requested 
by the title company and reasonably approved by Landlord providing Named Tenant’s title insurance, including a customary
owner’s affidavit and “gap” indemnity; and (iii) execute and deliver a bill of sale in the form attached as Schedule 35.3(a)(iii), 
conveying to the Named Tenant (or its designated Affiliate) all personal property at the Office Complex owned by Landlord.

                (b) At the Closing, Named Tenant shall deliver the purchase price to Landlord (which purchase price shall be
the amount set forth in Landlord’s First Offer Notice and accepted in Named Tenant’s Acceptance Notice), via wire transfer of
immediately available funds, provided that the Deposit and all interest accrued thereon, shall be delivered to Landlord at
Closing and credited against such purchase price.

                 (c) Landlord and Tenant will each pay their own attorneys’ fees in connection with the Closing. Landlord shall
pay the costs of preparing the deed, the costs associated with releasing any financial encumbrances of record and fees charged
to record the deed. Landlord shall pay the Commonwealth of Virginia’s grantor’s tax and Named Tenant shall pay all applicable
escrow fees charged by any escrow agent and the cost of all transfer and recordation taxes. Title examination, title insurance
premiums, survey charges, and the costs and expenses related to any purchase money financing shall be paid by Named Tenant
(other than charges related to the release of any existing financing liens on the Office Complex, which financing liens Landlord
shall cause to be released at or prior to the Closing). All other charges shall be borne by Landlord or Named Tenant as is usual
and customary to be borne by seller and purchaser, respectively, in customary transactions.

                  (d) In the event of a failure to close by reason of Named Tenant’s default, Landlord may retain the Deposit as
its sole and exclusive remedy for such default. In the event of a failure to close by reason of Landlord’s default, Named Tenant
shall have the right to either (i) receive a return of the Deposit (and all interest accrued thereon) and terminate the acquisition of 
the Office Complex (in which event all of the provisions of this Section 35 shall 
  
                                                                 -43-
apply to any subsequent effort of Landlord to sell the Office Complex), or (ii) specifically enforce Landlord’s obligations to sell
the Office Complex to Main Tenant in accordance with this Section. If Tenant fails to file an action for specific performance
within sixty (60) days after Landlord’s default, Tenant shall be deemed to have elected to proceed under clause (i) above. 

            35.4 The foregoing and any other provision of this Lease to the contrary notwithstanding, provided that the
transaction is consummated for a legitimate business purpose and not for the purpose of circumventing Tenant’s purchase
rights under this Section 35 , the rights accorded Tenant under this Section 35 shall not apply with respect to the following:
(i) any transaction entered into with an Affiliate of Landlord or any transaction between any Person that holds (directly or 
indirectly) an equity or other interests in Landlord or their Affiliates, (ii) a transfer of up to fifty (50%) percent of the ownership 
or equity interests (directly or indirectly) pertaining to the Office Complex or in Landlord to an unaffiliated third party,
(iii) Landlord’s granting any mortgage or other security interest encumbering the Office Complex or encumbering a direct or
indirect ownership or equity interest in Landlord, and any foreclosure sale or sale in lieu of foreclosure (or other exercise of
remedies) relating to such mortgage, security interest or equity interest, and the initial sale by any party acquiring Landlord’s
interest in the Office Complex after any such foreclosure, sale in lieu of foreclosure or other exercise of remedies, (iv) any direct 
or indirect transfer, sale or pledge (including, without limitation, by way of any merger, consolidation, amalgamation, sale, or
other transfer of any kind) of the legal or beneficial interests (including, without limitation, any rights, distributions, profits or
proceeds relating thereto), or assets of, the parent entities (or other upper tier level entities) which comprise the indirect
members of the Landlord entity, (v) a bona fide portfolio sale of which the Office Complex is a part, (vi) direct or indirect transfer 
of interests in Landlord in connection with any initial public offering and/or any subsequent public offering or any other
transfer of equity interests in Landlord or (vii) any transaction with respect to which Tenant shall have failed to avail itself of its 
rights under this Section (collectively, a “ Permitted Landlord Transfer ”).

           35.5 The foregoing and any other provision of this Lease to the contrary notwithstanding, the provisions of this
Section 35 (i) are personal to the Named Tenant and may not be exercised by any other Person (provided that the Named Tenant 
may designate an Affiliate of the Named Tenant to take title to the Office Complex in connection with the Named Tenant’s
exercise of its rights under this Section 35 ), (ii) are subject and subordinate to the rights of any present or future Mortgagee or 
other Person holding a security interest on any direct or indirect equity interests in Landlord, and (iii) the Named Tenant’s
rights granted in this Section 35 shall expire upon the earlier to occur of (x) the initial sale of the Building by Landlord after the 
date of this Lease or (y) any foreclosure sale or sale in lieu of foreclosure (or other exercise of remedies) relating to a Mortgage 
or equity interest encumbering the Building or direct or indirect equity interests in Landlord.

     36. Future Improvements .
          36.1(a) Except in the performance of Landlord’s obligations and in the exercise of Landlord’s rights under this
Lease (which obligations and rights shall be performed and exercised subject to and in accordance with Section 16 and
Section 6.3 ), Landlord shall not perform (or caused to be performed) any Alterations to the Premises, except as otherwise 
provided in  Section 36.1(b) and  Section 36.1(c) .

                    (b) Landlord may pursue rights to entitle additional development rights on the Land; provided, however, that
Landlord may not construct any additional entitled improvements upon the Land: (a) prior to the expiration of the eighth (8

(c) after the expiration of the eighth (8 th ) full calendar year of the Term through the initial Lease Expiration Date without 
Tenant’s prior consent in Tenant’s reasonable discretion with regard to any additional non-office improvements; or (d) during 
any Renewal Term of the Lease without Tenant’s prior consent in Tenant’s reasonable discretion with regard to any type of
additional improvements.

                  (c) Tenant shall be deemed reasonable in withholding its consent if the construction of any additional
improvements on the Land would adversely affect Tenant’s access, use, or enjoyment of the Premises. Tenant’s discretion may
be based on considerations that include, but are not be limited to: (i) noise, vibration, dust and debris that would be generated

each (each, a “ Renewal Term ”), with the first Renewal Term commencing on the day after the initial Expiration Date and the
second Renewal Term commencing on the day after the expiration of the first Renewal Term, by giving Landlord the Renewal
Notice at least twelve (12) months but not more than fifteen (15) months prior to, for the first Renewal Term, the initial Expiration 
Date, and for the second Renewal Term, the expiration of the first Renewal Term. If Tenant gives a Renewal Notice to Landlord
in accordance with this Section, then, subject to this Section, the Term shall be renewed for the first Renewal Term and/or the
second Renewal Term (as applicable) and Tenant shall have no right to renew or extend the Term beyond the second Renewal
Term. It shall be a condition to Tenant’s extension of the Term for the second Renewal Term that Tenant shall have renewed the
Term for the first Renewal Term.

                  (b) Landlord shall give Tenant at least ninety (90) days prior written notice, followed by a thirty (30) day prior 
written notice of the date that Landlord reasonably anticipates will be the Commencement Date, followed by no less than a ten
(10) day prior written notice of the actual Commencement Date, which Commencement Date shall in no event be earlier than 
February 1, 2011. As of the Effective Date, Landlord and Tenant anticipate that the Commencement Date will be no later than on 
July 1, 2011. If the Commencement Date does not occur on or before November 30, 2011, then Tenant shall have the right to 
terminate this Lease by thereafter delivering to Landlord a thirty (30) day written notice of the exercise of such right, in which 
event this Lease shall terminate and be of no further force or effect and neither party shall have any further rights or obligations
hereunder; provided, however, if the Commencement Date occurs during such thirty (30) day period, Tenant’s exercise of its
termination right shall be deemed null and void.

                   (c) Landlord and Tenant acknowledge that, as of the Effective Date, the Premises is occupied by Sallie Mae,
Inc. (or parties claiming through Sallie Mae, Inc.) (“ Sallie Mae ”). Prior to the Effective Date, Landlord has entered into an

for the Premises (the “ Sallie Mae Lease ”), and Landlord has provided to Tenant a true, correct and complete copy of the Sallie
Mae Termination Agreement (redacted, if Landlord deems such redaction to be appropriate, other than with respect to the term
expiration and termination provisions). The Sallie Mae Termination Agreement provides, among other things,
  
                                                                 -2-


that (i) the Sallie Mae Lease shall expire, at Sallie Mae’s option, on June 30, 2011, July 31, 2011 or August 31, 2011 (the “ Sallie
Mae Expiration Date ”), (ii) on the Sallie Mae Expiration Date, Sallie Mae shall surrender the Premises to Landlord broom clean 
and in good order and condition, ordinary wear and tear and damage for which Sallie Mae is not responsible under the terms of
the Sallie Mae Lease excepted (the “ Sallie Mae Delivery Condition ”), (iii) on the Sallie Mae Expiration Date, good and 
marketable title of the Furnishings (as defined in Section 2.7 ) shall be conveyed by Sallie Mae to Landlord, and (iv) on the Sallie 
Mae Expiration Date, Sallie Mae shall have removed all of Sallie Mae’s signs (including all monument, exterior Building signs
and signs within the Premises) and shall have repaired and restored any damage caused thereby. Landlord shall use
commercially reasonable good faith efforts to enforce (including, if necessary, litigation) all of Sallie Mae’s obligations arising
under the Sallie Mae Termination Agreement, and, on a regular basis, Landlord shall keep Tenant informed of the status of Sallie
Mae’s departure from the Premises and the status of Landlord’s efforts to enforce Sallie Mae’s obligations under the Sallie Mae
Lease Termination Agreement. Landlord shall have no obligation to make any payment to Sallie Mae in order to entice Sallie
Mae to surrender possession of the Premises to Landlord.

            2.3(a) The fixed rent (“ Fixed Rent ”) payable by Tenant under this Lease shall be as set forth on Schedule 2.3 . Fixed
Rent payable during any Renewal Term shall be as provided in Section 2.3(d) . Monthly Fixed Rent shall be due and payable by
Tenant in advance on the first (1 st ) day of each calendar month during the Term (each, a “ Rent Payment Date ”), beginning on
the 151 st day from the Commencement Date (or, if such 151 st day is not the first (1 st ) day of a calendar month, the first Rent 
Payment Date shall be the first (1 st ) day of the calendar month immediately following such 151  st day, and Tenant shall be liable
for Fixed Rent (calculated on a per diem basis) for each day of the period beginning on such 151 st day and ending on the day
prior to such first (1 st ) day of such calendar month). Such first Rent Payment Date is herein referred to as the “ Rent
Commencement Date ” ( e.g. , if the Commencement Date is July 1, 2011, the Rent Commencement Date and the first Rent 
Payment Date will be December 1, 2011). Notwithstanding the foregoing to the contrary, Tenant shall be entitled to an 
abatement of, and Landlord hereby waives Tenant’s obligation to pay, fifty percent (50%) of all Fixed Rent installments with 
respect to the period beginning on the Rent Commencement Date and ending on the day immediately preceding the eighteenth
(18 th ) monthly anniversary of the Rent Commencement Date (the “ Abatement Period ”). Nothing herein contained shall be
deemed to diminish or relieve Tenant of its obligation to pay in accordance with the terms of this Lease all sums owed by
Tenant to Landlord under this Lease during the Abatement Period other than Fixed Rent. Commencing on the first day following
the Abatement Period, the full installments of Fixed Rent shall then and thereafter be payable in full by Tenant in accordance
with the terms of the Lease.

               (b) Tenant shall pay to Landlord, in addition to Fixed Rent, any and all other sums of money as shall become
due from and payable by Tenant to Landlord in accordance with the provisions of this Lease (collectively, the “ Additional Rent
”).

                 (c) The following provisions shall govern the payment of Rent: (i) the covenant to pay Rent shall be 
independent of every other covenant in this Lease; (ii) in the event of the expiration or termination of this Lease prior to the 
determination of any Additional Rent, Tenant’s agreement to pay any such sums and Landlord’s obligation to refund any such
sums
  
                                                               -3-


shall survive the expiration or termination of this Lease; and (iii) each amount owed to Landlord under this Lease for which the 
date of payment is not expressly fixed shall be due thirty (30) days after the date of Tenant’s receipt of the statement showing
the amount due.

                 (d)(i) The annual Fixed Rent payable during a Renewal Term shall be the Renewal Rate (no rate floor) for the
Premises as of the commencement of the applicable Renewal Term (the “ Renewal Calculation Date ”), with such Renewal Rate
being escalated on each anniversary of the Renewal Calculation Date by the market escalation rate that shall be determined as
part of the determination of the Renewal Rate.

                      (ii) The “ Renewal Rate ” means the fair market triple net rental rate for the Premises as of the Renewal
Calculation Date based on comparable space in Comparable Buildings for tenants having status comparable to Tenant’s status;
considering all of Landlord’s services to be provided under this Lease during the applicable Renewal Term; with Tenant being
required to pay Taxes (and Management Costs, if Landlord exercises its rights under Section 6.3 following an Operating Failure)
required to pay Taxes (and Management Costs, if Landlord exercises its rights under Section 6.3 following an Operating Failure)
pursuant to Section 4 of this Lease; assuming the Renewal Term rent is not set forth in the lease between the parties; assuming
that the leased premises is unencumbered ( e.g. , the leased premises is not subject to another party’s superior expansion right);
and otherwise taking all relevant factors into account including, without limitation, the following (to the extent applicable): rental
abatements, brokerage commissions, the condition of the Premises, build-out periods and construction allowances for standard
and above-standard construction and “downtime” that may be associated with the renewal or comparable transactions.
Escalations in the Renewal Rate during a Renewal Term shall be determined by market practice with respect to comparable space
in Comparable Buildings.

                      (iii) Landlord shall advise Tenant (the “ Renewal Rent Notice ”) of Landlord’s determination of the
                     (iii) Landlord shall advise Tenant (the “ Renewal Rent Notice ”) of Landlord’s determination of the
Renewal Rate within ten (10) days after receiving the Renewal Notice. If Tenant does not accept Landlord’s determination of the
Renewal Rate, the parties shall meet and seek to reach agreement on the Renewal Rate during the thirty (30) day period that 
begins when Tenant receives the Extension Rent Notice (the “ Renewal Negotiation Period ”).

                       (iv) If Landlord and Tenant do not agree upon the Renewal Rate in writing within the Renewal Negotiation
Period, Tenant shall within five (5) Business Days after the expiration of the Renewal Negotiation Period notify Landlord in 
writing that Tenant elects to either (x) withdraw Tenant’s Renewal Notice, in which event Tenant’s Renewal Notice will be of no
force or effect and the Term of this Lease shall end on the original Expiration Date, or (y) require that such disagreement be 
resolved by arbitration in accordance with the procedures set forth below (and in the absence of such notice from Tenant,
Tenant shall be deemed to have elected to proceed under clause (y)):

                            (A) In the event Tenant delivers the notice described in Section 2.3(d)(iv) requiring arbitration as
described in clause (y) of said Section (or is deemed to have given such notice pursuant to said clause (y)), within five 
(5) Business Days of delivery of such notice (or deemed delivery) Tenant shall provide Landlord with notice of the name and 
address of the person to act as the arbitrator on Tenant’s behalf. The arbitrator shall be a real estate broker licensed in the
Commonwealth of Virginia with at least ten (10) years full-time
  
                                                                 -4-


commercial brokerage experience who is familiar with the fair market rental rate of comparable space in Comparable Buildings.
Within ten (10) Business Days after the service of Tenant’s designation of Tenant’s arbitrator, the Landlord shall give notice to
Tenant specifying the name and address of the person designated by Landlord to act as arbitrator on its behalf, which arbitrator
shall be similarly qualified. If a party fails to notify the other party of the appointment of its arbitrator within the time period
specified in this Section 2.3(d)(iv)(A) , and such failure continues for three (3) Business Days after such other party delivers a 
second notice to the first party, then the arbitrator appointed by such other party shall be the arbitrator to determine the
Renewal Rate.

                             (B) The arbitrators shall meet within ten (10) Business Days after the second arbitrator is appointed 
and shall seek to reach agreement on Renewal Rate. If within twenty (20) Business Days after the second arbitrator is appointed 
the two (2) arbitrators do not reach agreement on Renewal Rate then the two (2) arbitrators shall appoint a third arbitrator, who 
shall be a person with qualifications similar to those required of the first two (2) arbitrators; provided, however, that in no event 
shall such third arbitrator be a broker that either Landlord or Tenant has engaged pursuant to a written agreement during the
five (5) year period prior to appointment of such third arbitrator. If the two (2) arbitrators do not agree upon such appointment 
within five (5) Business Days after expiration of such twenty (20) Business Day period, then either party, on behalf of both, may 
within five (5) Business Days after expiration of such twenty (20) Business Day period, then either party, on behalf of both, may 
request appointment of such a qualified person by the then president of the Greater Washington Commercial Association of
REALTORS®, or the successor organization thereto. Each party shall pay the fees and expenses of its respective arbitrator and
both shall share the fees and expenses of the third arbitrator. Attorneys’ fees and expenses of counsel and of witnesses for the
respective parties shall be paid by the respective party engaging such counsel or calling such witnesses.

                             (C) The Renewal Rate shall be determined by the third arbitrator in accordance with the following
procedures. Concurrently with the appointment of the third arbitrator, each of the arbitrators selected by the parties shall state,
in writing, his or her determination of the Renewal Rate supported by the reasons therefor. The third arbitrator shall have the
right to consult experts and competent authorities for factual information or evidence pertaining to a determination of the
Renewal Rate, but any such determination shall be made in the presence of both parties with full right on their part to cross-
examine. The third arbitrator shall conduct such hearings and investigations as he or she deems appropriate and shall, within
thirty (30) days after being appointed, select which of the two (2) proposed determinations most closely approximates his or her 
determination of the Renewal Rate. The third arbitrator shall have no right to propose a middle ground or any modification of
either of the two proposed determinations. The determination that the third arbitrator chooses as that most closely
approximating his or her determination of the Renewal Rate shall constitute the decision of the third arbitrator and shall be final
and binding upon the parties. The third arbitrator shall render his or her decision in writing with counterpart copies to each
party. The third arbitrator shall have no power to add to or modify the provisions of this Lease. Promptly following receipt of
the third arbitrator’s decision, the parties shall enter into an amendment to this Lease confirming the Renewal Rate, but the
failure of the parties to do so shall not affect the effectiveness of the third arbitrator’s determination or the effectiveness of the
Renewal Term.
  
                                                                   -5-



     




                             (D) In the event of a failure, refusal or inability of any arbitrator to act, his or her successor shall be
appointed by him or her, but in the case of the third arbitrator, his or her successor shall be appointed in the same manner as
that set forth herein with respect to the appointment of the original third arbitrator.

           2.4 Tenant covenants and agrees to pay Fixed Rent and the Additional Rent (collectively, “ Rent ”) promptly when
due without notice or demand therefor, except as such notice or demand may be expressly provided for in this Lease, and
without any abatement, deduction or setoff for any reason whatsoever except as otherwise expressly provided for in this Lease.
All regularly scheduled payments of Rent ( e.g. , Fixed Rent) shall be paid by either wire or ACH transfer, in Tenant’s sole
discretion, in lawful money of the United States to Landlord at its office or such other place, or to Landlord’s agent or at such
other place, as Landlord shall designate by written notice to Tenant. Any Additional Rent payments which are not regularly
scheduled payments shall be due thirty (30) days after the date of Tenant’s receipt of the statement showing the amount due.
Such payments may be paid either by check or wire transfer. As of the Effective Date, Rent shall be paid to Landlord at Two
Embarcadero Center, 23 rd floor, San Francisco, CA 94111, Attention: Jamie McCue. 

            2.5 If the Rent Commencement Date with respect to any portion of the Premises commences on a day other than the
first (1st) day of a calendar month, or if the Expiration Date occurs on a day other than the last day of a calendar month, the 
Fixed Rent for the applicable partial calendar month shall be prorated on the basis of a 365-day year (based on the actual number
of days in question).

          2.6(a) No payment by Tenant or receipt or acceptance by Landlord of a lesser amount than the correct Fixed Rent or
Additional Rent shall be deemed to be other than a payment on account of such amount, nor shall any endorsement or
statement on any check or any letter accompanying any check or payment be deemed an accord and satisfaction, and Landlord
may accept such check or payment without prejudice to Landlord’s right to recover the balance or pursue any other remedy
provided in this Lease or at law. Additional Rent shall be deemed to be Rent under this Lease and Tenant’s failure to pay
Additional Rent in the manner provided in this Lease (subject to any applicable grace, cure or notice period) shall be considered
a failure to pay Rent under this Lease and Landlord shall be entitled to any rights and remedies provided herein or at law for
such default. If Landlord shall at any time or times accept Rent after it has become due and payable, such acceptance shall not
excuse a subsequent delay or constitute a waiver of Landlord’s rights hereunder.

                 (b) If any amount of Rent owed by Tenant to Landlord is not paid on or before the date that is ten (10) days 
after Landlord has given Tenant written notice that the payment is delinquent, then, in addition to paying the amount of Rent
then due, Tenant shall pay to Landlord a late charge (the “ Late Charge ”) equal to three percent (3%) of the amount of Rent 
then required to be paid and shall also pay interest on such Rent from the date due until the date paid at the Applicable Rate;
provided, however, that with respect to the first such late payment in each calendar year, Landlord shall not assess the Late
Charge and interest shall not accrue if such delinquent payment of Rent is made on or before the tenth (10 th ) day following 
Tenant’s receipt of such notice. Payment of such Late Charge will not excuse the untimely payment of Rent. Any Late Charge
and other amounts charged hereunder shall constitute Additional Rent.
  
                                                                 -6-

transfer to Tenant (or cause to be transferred to Tenant) good and marketable title in and to the furniture, fixtures and
equipment set forth on Schedule 2.7-A to this Lease (the “ Furnishings ”), and Landlord shall deliver the Furnishings to Tenant
in the Premises. Tenant will accept the Furnishings in “as is” condition as of the Commencement Date, without any other
representations or warranties by Landlord. Tenant shall pay any sales tax due in connection with the transfer of ownership of
the Furnishings to Tenant. On the Commencement Date, Landlord shall deliver to Tenant a bill of sale with respect to the
Furnishings in the form attached hereto as Schedule 2.7-B .

            2.8(a) Subject to the limitations set forth below, at least seven hundred (700) parking spaces shall be made available to 
Tenant and Tenant’s visitors at the Office Complex in the parking garage and parking lot (collectively, “ Parking Facilities ”).
Tenant agrees that Landlord does not assume any responsibility for any damage or loss to any vehicle parked in the Parking
Facilities, and any property located therein, or for any injury sustained by any person in or about the Parking Facilities, other
than any of same arising from the negligence or willful misconduct of Landlord or its agents, employees or contractors.

                 (b) Tenant shall have the exclusive right to park in the Parking Facilities during the initial Term and any
Renewal Term which parking rights shall be without charge during the initial Term and which parking rights shall be subject to
the reasonable use of the Parking Facilities by Landlord (including Landlord’s agents, employees and contractors) in performing
Landlord’s duties and exercising Landlord’s rights under this Lease. During any Renewal Term, Tenant shall pay to Landlord as
Additional Rent a monthly parking charge for each parking space at the Parking Facilities in an amount equal to the charge that
third party parking garage operators or parking garage tenants are then charging for monthly parking at Comparable Buildings
(the “ Parking Costs ”). At the time the Renewal Rate is determined, the parties shall also determine the Parking Costs and, if
necessary, use the same arbitration procedure set forth in Section 2.3(d) to resolve any dispute with respect to the amount of 
the Parking Costs.

          2.9 Landlord shall pay to Tenant an allowance in the amount of Six Million Six Hundred Thirty-Nine Thousand Seven
Hundred Eighty Dollars ($6,639,780) (the “ Allowance ”) on the Commencement Date. Tenant shall have the right to retain or use

reasonable good faith efforts (including, if necessary, litigation) to cause Sallie Mae to surrender the Premises in the Sallie Mae
Delivery Condition. Landlord shall not be required to perform any work, install any fixtures or equipment or render any services
to make the Building or the Premises ready or suitable for Tenant’s occupancy; provided, however, Landlord shall, at
Landlord’s expense, use commercially reasonable efforts to complete any
  
                                                                 -7-


Punch List Work within thirty (30) days following the Commencement Date. Tenant’s possession of the Premises or any portion
thereof shall constitute Tenant’s acceptance of the Premises and acknowledgement that the Premises is in the Delivery
Condition, except for any Punch List Work. “ Punch List Work ” means any work required to put the Premises in Delivery
Condition (including, without limitation, as provided in Section 7.3 ). Within five (5) Business Days after the Commencement 
Date, Landlord and Tenant shall meet at the Premises and mutually create a list of any Punch List Work. In the event Landlord

party costs and expenses actually incurred by Tenant in performing such Punch List Work, together with interest at the
Applicable Rate, within thirty (30) days following Tenant’s demand therefor. In the event Landlord fails to so reimburse Tenant,

and training rooms, mail rooms, dining facilities, kitchens, pantries, vending machines, fitness facility, meeting rooms and all
other business lawful facilities which Tenant reasonably considers necessary or desirable in the conduct of its business (any
such use, a “ Permitted Use ”); provided , however , that Tenant shall not use the Premises or any part thereof, or permit the
Premises or any part thereof to be used in any manner that would (i) violate any Legal Requirements, (ii) cause structural injury 
to the Building, (iii) make void or voidable, or make it difficult to obtain at standard cost Virginia standard form fire insurance,

Buildings, (iv) constitute a public or private nuisance, or (v) materially and adversely affect the value of the Building (other than 
ordinary wear and tear).

           3.3 If any governmental license or permit (including any amendment to the non-residential use permit for the Building)
shall be required for the proper and lawful conduct of Tenant’s business in the Premises or any part thereof, Tenant, at
Tenant’s sole cost and expense, shall duly procure and thereafter maintain such license or permit and, upon request, shall
deliver a copy of the same to Landlord, all prior to undertaking the use that necessitates such license or permit. Tenant shall
comply with the material terms and conditions of such licenses or permits. At Tenant’s sole cost and expense, Landlord shall
cooperate with Tenant in connection with obtaining any such governmental license or permit (including any permit required in
connection with any Alterations) or any application by Tenant for any amendment or modification to the Building’s non-
residential use permit, and shall reasonably promptly execute and deliver any applications, reports or related documents as may
be requested by Tenant in connection therewith, provided that Tenant will reimburse Landlord for the actual out of pocket
costs and expenses incurred by Landlord in connection with such cooperation within thirty (30) days after written demand 
therefor, accompanied by reasonably satisfactory documentation of such costs and expenses.

unpaid Taxes, together with interest and penalties due with respect thereto, and Landlord shall reimburse Tenant therefor,
together with interest at the Applicable Rate, within thirty (30) days following demand. In the event Landlord fails to so 
reimburse Tenant, Tenant may deduct such amounts from the next installments of Fixed Rent payable by Tenant hereunder until
such amounts have been paid in full.

           4.2 Landlord shall provide Tenant, not later than one (1) month prior to the commencement of each Tax Year,

continuing on each subsequent Rent Payment Date thereafter for the remainder of such Tax Year, Tenant shall pay into escrow
as designated by Landlord (or any Superior Mortgagee) one-twelfth (1/12 th ) of the amount of Estimated Taxes due during such

the extent that Actual Taxes exceed Estimated Taxes for any Tax Year (or portion thereof), Tenant shall pay to Landlord, as
Additional Rent, on the Rent Payment Date next succeeding Tenant’s receipt of Landlord’s notice of Actual Taxes (provided
that if such next Rent Payment Date is less than thirty (30) days after Tenant’s receipt of Landlord’s notice, then Tenant may
make such payment on the following Rent Payment Date), the amount of such deficiency or if the Term hereof has expired or
been terminated, within thirty (30) days after Landlord’s written request therefor. To the extent that Estimated Taxes exceed
Actual Taxes for any Tax Year, Tenant may offset the amount of such overpayment from the amount of Fixed Rent due on the
Rent Payment Date(s) next succeeding Tenant’s receipt of Landlord’s notice of Actual Taxes or if the Term hereof has expired
or been terminated, Landlord shall refund such overpayment to Tenant within thirty (30) days of Landlord’s delivery of the
written statement of Actual Taxes to Tenant. All amounts so escrowed may only be used to pay Taxes and, to the extent of the
written statement of Actual Taxes to Tenant. All amounts so escrowed may only be used to pay Taxes and, to the extent of the
payment, shall discharge Tenant’s obligations hereunder with respect to such payments.

          4.3 Taxes for any Tax Year during which the Term commences or expires shall be apportioned between Landlord and
Tenant so that Tenant pays its pro rata share of Taxes for such period based on the number of days which fall within the Term.
If Landlord shall receive a refund of Taxes for any Tax Year, Landlord shall promptly notify Tenant of the amount of such refund
inclusive of any interest thereon received by Landlord, and such refund (or portion of such refund with respect to a refund of
Taxes for any Tax Year during which the Term commences or expires) (after deducting any and all actual third party costs and
expenses,
  
                                                                -9-


including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees, incurred by Landlord in connection with obtaining or collecting such
refund) shall be credited to the installment(s) of Fixed Rent next payable by Tenant or shall be paid to Tenant within fifteen
(15) Business Days after receipt by Landlord. 

          4.4(a) The expiration or termination of this Lease during any Tax Year (for any part or all of which there is a Tax
payment under this Section 4 ) shall not affect the rights or obligations of the parties hereto respecting the payment of Taxes (or
any Tax Statement relating to such payment), and, except as set forth in Section 4.4(b) to the contrary, all such rights and
obligations shall survive any such expiration or termination of this Lease for a period of one (1) year. 

                 (b) The foregoing and any other provision of this Lease to the contrary notwithstanding (including, without
                  (b) The foregoing and any other provision of this Lease to the contrary notwithstanding (including, without
limitation, the provisions of Section 4.2 ), if a Tax contest is filed with respect to an applicable Tax year, all of Landlord’s and
Tenant’s respective rights and obligations with respect to the payment and reimbursement of Taxes for such Tax year shall be
extended and shall survive for a period of one (1) year after such Tax contest is finally resolved (including all appeals). 

           4.5 Upon twenty (20) days prior written notice to Landlord, Tenant shall have the right to contest, by appropriate 
legal proceedings prosecuted by Tenant in good faith and at Tenant’s sole cost and expense, the existence, amount and/or
validity of Taxes payable by Tenant under this Lease; provided that such proceedings shall operate during the pendency
thereof to stay: (a) the accumulation of penalties or interest on the collection of, or other realization upon, the Taxes so 
contested (unless Tenant agrees to pay such penalties or interest), (b) the sale, forfeiture or loss of the Office Complex, or 
(c) any interference with the use or occupancy of the Office Complex. In no event shall Tenant pursue any contest with respect 
to any Tax in such manner that may expose the Landlord or Tenant to any criminal or civil liability, penalty, or sanction (other
than interest and civil penalties that Tenant agrees to pay). Tenant further agrees that each such contest shall be promptly and
diligently prosecuted to a final conclusion, except that Tenant shall, so long as all of the conditions of this Section are at all
times complied with, have the right to attempt to settle or compromise such contest through negotiations. Tenant shall pay any
and all judgments, decrees and costs (including all reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses) in connection with any such
contest and shall, promptly after the final determination of such contest, fully pay and discharge the amounts which shall be
levied, assessed, charged or imposed or be determined to be payable therein or in connection therewith (unless such amounts
have been paid to Landlord pursuant to Section 4.2 , in which event Landlord shall pay same to the taxing authority), together
with all penalties, fines, interest, costs and expenses thereof or in connection therewith, and perform all acts within Tenant’s
control the performance of which shall be ordered or decreed as a result thereof. Notwithstanding the fact that Tenant is
prosecuting a contest of Taxes in accordance with the terms of this Section, Landlord may at any time pay, remove or cause to
be discharged the Tax thereby being contested. If Tenant shall fail to pay or cause to be paid any Taxes when finally determined
(provided that if such amounts have been paid to Landlord pursuant to Section 4.2 , Landlord shall be responsible for paying
same to the taxing authority), Landlord may, upon notice to Tenant, pay such Taxes, together with interest and penalties due
with respect thereto, and Tenant shall reimburse Landlord therefor, within thirty (30) days following demand, as Additional 
Rent.
  
                                                                 -10-

with this Section, including execution of any applications as may be required in connection therewith.

commencement of any Pre-approved Alterations, Tenant shall deliver to Landlord written notice of any such Pre-approved
Alteration project the cost of which is over $100,000. As used in this Lease, “ Pre-approved Alteration ” means any Alteration
which is not a Specialty Alteration and (i) which does not require penetration of the exterior of the Building, including the roof 
(except for penetrations Tenant is permitted to make pursuant to Sections 14 and 15 which shall be governed by those Sections
and not this Section 5 ), and (ii) which does not otherwise materially adversely affect any Building Systems and/or Structural 
Elements. “ Specialty Alterations ” shall mean any (A) Alteration consisting of the addition or removal of internal staircases, 
SCIFs, vaults, dumbwaiters, vertical transportation systems or any other Alterations which: (1) penetrate the floor or ceiling 
slabs of the Building; (2) are not customary installations for tenants occupying premises comparable to the Premises for general, 
administrative and executive office use as permitted under this Lease; and (B) Alteration to the exterior of the Building, the

respond in writing to Tenant’s request not more than ten (10) Business Days after Landlord’s receipt of Tenant’s request for
consent. If Landlord denies Tenant’s request, Landlord shall provide Tenant with a written explanation for the reasons for its
denial. If Landlord consents to Tenant’s request, Landlord shall have the right to make its consent subject to a requirement that
Tenant remove the applicable Alterations upon the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease with respect to all or any
portion of the Premises (any such Alterations so designated by Landlord for removal being “ Required Removal Alterations ”),
and restore any such portion of the Premises substantially to its condition immediately prior to such Alteration. Landlord’s
failure to respond to Tenant’s request for approval of Alterations as required above within the time period specified above shall
be deemed Landlord’s approval of Tenant’s request. Within thirty (30) days after the completion of any Alterations requiring 
Landlord’s approval, Tenant shall deliver a complete set of “as built” plans and specifications to Landlord with respect to such

the actual third-party out of pocket costs (if any) ( e.g. , fees of Landlord’s third-party architect and MEP engineer) reasonably
incurred by Landlord in reviewing Tenant’s proposed and final Alteration plans.

           5.3 Prior to the commencement of any Alteration, Tenant shall (i) at Tenant’s expense, obtain all permits, approvals
and certificates, if any, required by any Governmental Authorities, and (ii) if requested by Landlord, furnish to Landlord 
duplicate certificates of worker’s compensation insurance (covering all persons to be employed by Tenant, and Tenant’s
contractors and subcontractors in connection with such Alteration) and comprehensive public liability insurance (including
property damage coverage) in such form, with such companies, for such periods and in such amounts consistent with
customary industry practice in Comparable Buildings, naming Landlord, and any Superior Mortgagee, as additional insureds.
Upon completion of such Alteration, Tenant, at Tenant’s expense, shall obtain certificates of final approval of such Alteration,
if any, required by any Governmental Authority and shall furnish Landlord with copies thereof; provided said Governmental
Authority does, in its normal course, provide or conduct such review or approval.

          5.4 All Alterations made by or for the benefit of Tenant shall (a) be made and performed in a good and workmanlike 
manner by contractors licensed in the Commonwealth of Virginia; (b) be made and performed in accordance with all Legal

and workmanlike manner any damage to the Premises and/or the Building caused by Tenant’s removal of Required Removal
Alterations and of such Alterations that constitute Tenant’s Property. If Tenant fails to so remove any of Tenant’s Property
and/or any Required Removal Alterations, the same shall be deemed abandoned and Landlord may remove and dispose of
same, and repair and restore any damage caused thereby, at Tenant’s expense.

          5.6 Tenant shall not, directly or indirectly, create or otherwise cause, and shall promptly discharge, at Tenant’s
expense, any lien, attachment, title retention agreement or claim upon the Premises created or caused by or through Tenant.
Any mechanic’s or materialmen’s lien filed against the Premises for work claimed to have been done for, or materials claimed to

Transition Date, Landlord shall perform, or cause to be performed, such replacements and such reasonable repairs and
maintenance except to the extent any of same is the responsibility of Tenant pursuant to Section 1(b) of Schedule 6.3. The costs

Superior Mortgagee SNDA ”), which Superior Mortgagee SNDA shall provide that (i) provided that Tenant performs all of its 
obligations under this Lease, Tenant’s right to occupy the Premises shall not be disturbed by the transferee of the Office
Complex or any part thereof in the event any foreclosure proceeding is prosecuted or completed or in the event the Office
Complex,
  
                                                                -16-


any part thereof or Landlord’s interest therein is transferred by foreclosure, by deed in lieu of foreclosure or otherwise (each, a “ 
Foreclosure Event ”), (ii) in the event of any Foreclosure Event, Tenant shall attorn to the transferee and shall recognize such 
transferee as the landlord under this Lease for the unexpired balance (and any renewals, if exercised) of the Term of this Lease
upon the terms and conditions set forth in this Lease, and (iii) such transferee shall assume all of Landlord’s future obligations
including, without limitation, the obligation to cure any then ongoing non-monetary default of Landlord after a reasonable time
period after such transferee becomes the owner of the Office Complex but only to the extent such non-monetary default is
reasonably curable by such transferee, and shall pay any refunds or credits due to Tenant and arising under this Lease from
and after the Foreclosure Event.

          8.3 Landlord represents and warrants to Tenant that no Superior Mortgage exists as of the Effective Date.

     9. Insurance Requirements .
           9.1 Neither Landlord nor Tenant shall violate, or permit the violation of, any condition imposed by any property
insurance policy which applies to the Office Complex, nor commit or permit any violation of the policies of insurance carried by
the other party with respect to the Office Complex, and shall not do anything, or permit anything to be done, or keep or permit
anything to be kept in the Office Complex which could result in the termination of any of such policies, which would increase
the property or other casualty insurance rate on the Office Complex or the property therein over the rate which would otherwise
then be in effect or which would result in insurance companies of good standing refusing to insure the Office Complex or any of
such property in amounts customarily maintained for Comparable Buildings.

          9.2 Landlord shall carry and maintain the Landlord insurance coverages listed on Schedule 9 to this Lease and such
additional or substitute coverages as are from time to time maintained by landlords of Comparable Buildings or required by any
Superior Mortgagee.

          9.3 Tenant shall carry and maintain the Tenant insurance coverages listed on Schedule 9 to this Lease and such
additional or substitute coverages as are from time to time maintained by tenants of comparable size to Tenant (both in terms of
Tenant’s financial size as well as the size of the Premises) in Comparable Buildings.

          9.4 Landlord or Tenant, as applicable, shall pay as they become due all premiums for the insurance required to be
carried by such party by this Section 9 , shall renew or replace each policy and deliver to the other party evidence of the
payment of the full premium therefor or installment then due at least ten (10) days prior to the expiration date of such policy. 
Tenant or Landlord shall provide the other party with evidence of insurance within ten (10) days of receipt of a request thereof 
by the other party.

           9.5 In the event Landlord or Tenant, as applicable, shall fail to maintain the insurance as herein required, the other
party shall have the right, but not the obligation, to acquire such insurance and pay the premiums therefor, which actual
premium amounts shall be payable to such other party within thirty (30) days of receipt of an invoice therefor, with reasonable 
backup documentation.
  
                                                                -17-


     10. Damage or Destruction by Casualty .
           10.1 If during the Term the Office Complex shall be partially or totally damaged or destroyed by fire or other casualty,
then the following shall apply:

                  (a) Tenant shall give written notice to Landlord of any damage or casualty occurring during the Term with
respect to the Office Complex. Within sixty (60) days following such damage or casualty, Tenant shall provide Landlord with a 
written notice setting forth the percentage of the Building (or other improvements comprising the Office Complex) that has been
rendered untenantable (or, with respect to other improvements comprising the Office Complex, unusable for their intended
purpose) by reason of such damage or casualty, and the reasonable estimate of the time that is needed to substantially
complete the repair of such damage or casualty, in each case as determined by a registered architect or licensed professional
engineer designated by Tenant and reasonably acceptable to Landlord (the “ Restoration Estimate ”).

                  (b) If the Restoration Estimate states that (i) more than twenty-five percent (25%) of the rentable area of the 
Building is rendered untenantable due to damage or destruction to the Building, or (ii) the reasonable estimate of the time 
needed to substantially complete the repair of such casualty or damage is more than three hundred sixty-five (365) days from 
the date of the casualty or damage, then either Tenant or Landlord may terminate the entire Lease by giving the other party
notice to such effect as soon as practicable under the circumstances and in any event within sixty (60) days after the delivery of 
the Restoration Estimate, and upon the date that is thirty (30) days following the giving of such notice, the Term and the estate 
hereby granted shall terminate and those provisions that expressly survive the termination or earlier expiration of this Lease
shall so survive. If neither party terminates this Lease pursuant to this Section 10.1(b) , then Landlord shall commence and
diligently continue to perform all restoration and repairs of the Building as set forth in Section 10.1(c) . For purposes of this
Section 10 , the term “ untenantable ” shall mean inaccessible or unusable for the normal conduct of Tenant’s business in a
Section 10 , the term “ untenantable ” shall mean inaccessible or unusable for the normal conduct of Tenant’s business in a
manner which is consistent with Tenant’s use prior to the occurrence of the casualty in question and the Tenant ceases the
operation of its business within such portions of the Building (or the portion thereof deemed “untenantable,” as the case may
be) other than to the limited extent of Tenant’s security personnel for the preservation of Tenant’s property, Tenant’s insurance
adjusters, and/or a minimal number of Tenant’s employees for file retrieval, planning of temporary relocation and other disaster
recovery functions.

                  (c) If the Restoration Estimate states that (i) twenty-five percent (25%) or less of the rentable area of the 
Building is rendered untenantable due to damage or destruction to the Building and (ii) the reasonable estimate of the time 
needed to substantially complete the repair of such casualty or damage is less than three hundred sixty-five (365) days from the 
date of the casualty or damage, then Landlord shall commence and diligently continue to perform all restoration/repairs to the
Building and any insurance proceeds received by Tenant therefor shall be assigned or delivered to Landlord for such purpose.
If the foregoing restoration/repairs (or the restoration/repairs undertaken after the failure of any party to terminate this Lease
pursuant to Section 10.1(b) ) to the Building by Landlord are not completed within three hundred sixty-five (365) days after the 
date of the casualty or damage, then Tenant may terminate this lease by giving written notice thereof to Landlord within thirty
(30) days after the expiration of such three hundred sixty-five (365) day period (unless the restoration/repairs are completed 
prior to delivery of such notice to Landlord) with such termination to be effective on the date that is thirty (30) days after the 
date of such notice from Tenant.
  
                                                                -18-


                 (d) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, if any portion of the improvements (other than
the Building) comprising the Office Complex are the subject of a casualty or damage, and such casualty or damage (i) materially 
interferes with Tenant’s use and occupancy of, or access to, the Premises as contemplated under this Lease, and (ii) the 
reasonable estimate of the time needed to substantially complete the repair of such casualty or damage is more than three
hundred sixty-five (365) days from the date of the casualty or damage, then Tenant may terminate the entire Lease by giving 
Landlord notice to such effect as soon as practicable under the circumstances and in any event within sixty (60) days after the 
delivery of the Restoration Estimate, and upon the date that is thirty (30) days following the giving of such notice, the Term and 
the estate hereby granted shall terminate and those provisions that expressly survive the termination or earlier expiration of this
Lease shall so survive. If Tenant does not elect to terminate this Lease pursuant to this Section 10.1(d) , or if the damage or
casualty to such other improvements comprising the Office Complex is of such a nature that Tenant is not entitled to terminate
this Lease pursuant to this Section 10.1(d) , then Landlord shall commence and diligently continue to perform all
restoration/repairs to such other improvements comprising the Office Complex and any insurance proceeds received by Tenant
therefor shall be assigned or delivered to Landlord for such purpose.

           10.2 If this Lease shall be terminated by Tenant pursuant to this Section 10 , then Tenant shall assign to Landlord all
insurance proceeds (less costs of collection) relating to tenant improvements of Tenant constructed after the Commencement
Date, if any, from policies being maintained by Tenant pursuant to Schedule 9 . In the event of any termination of the Lease,
Rent shall be prorated as of the date of the casualty or damage. In the event of any casualty or damage following which this
Lease is not terminated, but the casualty or damage is such so as to make the Premises or any part thereof untenantable or
inaccessible for five (5) consecutive Business Days or more, and Tenant ceases to use such untenantable area to conduct 
Tenant’s business, then Rent shall abate proportionately (based on the number of square feet rendered untenantable or
inaccessible) as of the first (1 st ) business day after the date of the casualty or damage until the earlier of the date that Tenant 
again uses such space to conduct Tenant’s business or the date that the restoration/repairs which Landlord is obligated to
perform hereunder have been substantially completed.

     11. Condemnation .
          11.1 If the entire Premises shall be acquired or condemned for any public or quasi-public use or purpose, this Lease
and the Term shall end as of the date of the vesting of title in the condemning authority with the same effect as if said date were
the Expiration Date.

           11.2 If less than the entire Premises shall be acquired or condemned for any public or quasi-public use or purpose,
then the following provisions shall apply:

                  (a) Except as otherwise provided herein, from and after the date of the vesting of title in the condemning
authority, this Lease and the Term shall continue in full force and effect except that this Lease and the Term shall end as to the
acquired or condemned portion of the Premises and Rent shall be reduced by the proportion which the area so acquired or
condemned bears to the total area of the Premises immediately prior to such acquisition or condemnation.
  
                                                                  -19-


                (b) If the acquisition or condemnation materially interferes with Tenant’s use and occupancy of, or access to,
the Premises as contemplated under this Lease, and, by reason of such acquisition or condemnation, Tenant cannot reasonably
be expected to maintain its business and operations therein, then Tenant, at Tenant’s option, may terminate this Lease effective
immediately upon written notice to Landlord delivered no later than thirty (30) days next following the date of vesting of title in 
the condemning authority, and the Rent shall be apportioned as of the date of such termination, and any prepaid portion of
Rent for any period after such date shall be refunded by Landlord to Tenant.

                 (c) If a part of the Premises shall be acquired or condemned and this Lease and the Term shall not be terminated
pursuant to the foregoing provisions of this Section 11.2 , Landlord shall remediate that part of the Premises not so acquired or
condemned to a premises separately demised from the space so taken or condemned to then Building standard conditions such
that Tenant may maintain its business and operations therein, exclusive of Tenant’s Property.

           11.3 If all or a portion of a Common Area is acquired or condemned for any public or quasi-public use or purpose, and
if such acquisition or condemnation materially interferes with Tenant’s use and occupancy of, or access to, the Building and/or
the Parking Garage as contemplated under this Lease, and, by reason of such acquisition or condemnation, Tenant cannot
reasonably be expected to maintain its business and operations therein, then Tenant, at Tenant’s option, may terminate this
Lease effective immediately upon written notice to Landlord delivered no later than thirty (30) days next following the date of 
vesting of title in the condemning authority, and the Rent shall be apportioned as of the date of such termination, and any
prepaid portion of Rent for any period after such date shall be refunded by Landlord to Tenant. If this Lease is not terminated
prepaid portion of Rent for any period after such date shall be refunded by Landlord to Tenant. If this Lease is not terminated
pursuant to this Section 11.3 , then Landlord shall remediate that part of the Common Areas not so acquired or condemned to
the then existing standard conditions of the Building.

           11.4 In connection with any acquisition or condemnation of the Parking Facility for any public or quasi-public use
or purpose that results in the reduction of the number of parking spaces available for use by Tenant within the Parking Facility, 
in an amount that is more than ten percent (10%) of the number of such parking spaces (a) required to be provided pursuant to  
Section 2.8(a) , or (b) required to be provided for the Premises pursuant to the applicable Legal Requirements at the time of such 
acquisition or condemnation, then either (i) Landlord shall arrange for substitute parking reasonably proximate to the Premises 
but in no event more than four blocks away, or (ii) if Landlord does not arrange for such substitute parking, monthly Fixed Rent 
shall be reduced by an amount equal to the number of parking spaces below the greater of the number required by clause (a) or 
(b) above, multiplied by the then current market rent for parking spaces at Comparable Buildings. 
  
                                                               -20-


           11.5 In the event of any acquisition or condemnation described in this Section 11 , Landlord shall be entitled to
receive the entire award for any such acquisition, condemnation and/or restoration, Tenant shall have no claim against Landlord
or the condemning authority for the value of any unexpired portion of the Term and Tenant hereby expressly assigns to
Landlord all of its right in and to any such award. Nothing contained in this Section 11.5 shall be deemed to prevent Tenant
from making a separate claim in any condemnation proceedings for the then value of any furniture, furnishings and fixtures
installed by and at the expense of Tenant and included in such taking, plus moving expenses.

     12. Assignment, Subletting and Mortgaging .
         12.1 Tenant may enter into Pre-approved Assignments without the prior written consent of Landlord. All Non-
Preapproved Assignments shall require the prior written consent of Landlord, as provided in Section 12.2 below.

          12.2 If Tenant desires to enter into a Non-Preapproved Assignment, then Tenant shall submit to Landlord with
respect to the proposed assignee (a “ Non-Preapproved Assignee ”) the following specific information (collectively, the “ 
Assignment Review Criteria ”): (A) the identity of the Non-Preapproved Assignee, (B) the most recent financial statement or 
other reasonable evidence of financial capacity of such Non-Preapproved Assignee, (C), if applicable, the credit rating of such
Non-Preapproved Assignee, and (D) the form of the proposed Assignment Agreement. Tenant shall also provide to Landlord 
such additional information as reasonably necessary to evaluate the proposed Non-Preapproved Assignee and reasonably
such additional information as reasonably necessary to evaluate the proposed Non-Preapproved Assignee and reasonably
requested by Landlord after Landlord’s receipt of the Assignment Review Criteria. Landlord, in its reasonable discretion, shall
approve or disapprove the Non-Preapproved Assignment no later than the tenth (10 th ) Business Day following receipt of the 
Assignment Review Criteria and, if Landlord has so requested, the additional information (which response shall include, in the
event of a disapproval, the reason(s) for such disapproval). Landlord shall be deemed to have acted reasonably in granting or
withholding consent if such grant or disapproval is based on the review of the Assignment Review Criteria applying
commercially prudent and reasonable business judgment, and in no event shall Landlord be required to consent to a proposed
assignment if at the date such consent is requested a monetary or material non-monetary Event of Default exists. Any purported
assignment in violation of this Section 12.2 shall be null and void. Landlord’s failure to respond to Tenant’s request for consent
of a Non-Preapproved Assignment within the time period specified above shall be deemed Landlord’s approval of Tenant’s
request.

           12.3 Tenant shall have the right, upon fifteen (15) days prior written notice to Landlord but with no prior consent or 
approval of Landlord being required or necessary, to enter into one or more subleases for any portion of the Premises with (i) an 
Affiliate of Tenant or a Permitted Assign for all or any portion of the Premises, or (ii) any other third parties that sublease, in the 
aggregate with all other then subtenants (exclusive of any subtenants that are Affiliates of Tenant), 110,663 or fewer rentable
square feet provided that such subtenant under this clause (ii) is consistent in kind and character with the tenants normally 
found in Comparable Buildings (each, a “ Pre-approved Sublet ”). All subleases other than subleases pursuant to Pre-approved
Sublets shall require Landlord’s prior consent or approval, which consent or approval shall not be unreasonably withheld,
delayed or conditioned; provided that in no event shall
  
                                                                 -21-


Landlord be required to consent to a proposed sublease if at the date such consent is requested an Event of Default exists.
Landlord shall respond to Tenant’s request for consent hereunder within ten (10) days of Landlord’s receipt of Tenant’s
request (which response shall include, in the event of a denial of the request, the reason(s) for such denial). Landlord’s failure
to respond to Tenant’s request within the time period specified above shall be deemed Landlord’s approval of Tenant’s
request. Any purported sublease in violation of this Section 12.3 shall be null and void.

          12.4 If Tenant assigns all of its rights and interest under this Lease, the assignee under such assignment shall
expressly assume all the obligations of Tenant hereunder, actual or contingent, arising on or after the date of such assignment,
by a written instrument delivered to Landlord at the time of such assignment in form and substance reasonably acceptable to
Landlord. Unless Landlord shall specifically agrees to the contrary in writing, no assignment or sublease shall affect or reduce
any of the obligations of Tenant hereunder, and all such obligations of Tenant shall continue in full force and effect as
obligations of a principal and not as obligations of a guarantor, as if no assignment or sublease had been made. No assignment
or sublease shall impose any additional obligations on Landlord under this Lease.

          12.5 Any provision herein to the contrary notwithstanding, the following terms and conditions will apply to any
subleasing or assignment by Tenant hereunder:

                (a) With respect to any subleasing or assignment that requires Landlord’s consent, Tenant shall, upon
demand, reimburse Landlord for all reasonable out-of-pocket expenses actually incurred by Landlord in connection with such
proposed assignment or sublease, including any investigations as to the acceptability of the proposed assignee or subtenant (“ 
Transferee ”) and all out-of-pocket legal costs reasonably incurred in connection with the granting of any requested consent,
Transferee ”) and all out-of-pocket legal costs reasonably incurred in connection with the granting of any requested consent,
such legal fees not to exceed, through December 31, 2013, $5,000 per proposed assignment or sublease, but without limitation 
(other than that the legal fees must be reasonable) if the proposed assignment or sublease includes unusual issues;

                 (b) the form of the proposed assignment or sublease agreement shall be reasonably satisfactory to Landlord;

                  (c) each sublease shall be subject and subordinate to this Lease and to the matters to which this Lease is or
shall be subordinate; and Tenant and each Transferee shall be deemed to have agreed that upon the occurrence and during the
continuation of an Event of Default hereunder, Tenant has hereby assigned to Landlord, and Landlord may, at its option, accept
such assignment of, all right, title and interest of Tenant as sublandlord under such sublease, together with all modifications,
extensions and renewals thereof then in effect and such Transferee shall, at Landlord’s option, attorn to Landlord pursuant to
the then executory provisions of such sublease, except that Landlord shall not be (A) liable for any previous act or omission of 
Tenant under such sublease, (B) subject to any counterclaim, offset or defense not expressly provided in such sublease, which 
theretofore accrued to such Transferee against Tenant, (C) bound by any previous modification of such sublease not 
consented to by Landlord or by any prepayment of more than one month’s rent, (D) bound to return such Transferee’s security
deposit, if any, except to the extent Landlord shall receive actual possession of such deposit and such Transferee shall be
entitled to the return of all or any portion of such deposit under the terms of its sublease, or (E) obligated to make any payment 
to or on behalf of such
  
                                                                -22-


Transferee, or to perform any work in the subleased space or the Building, or in any way to prepare the sublet space for
occupancy, beyond Landlord’s obligations under this Lease. The provisions of this Section shall be self-operative, and no
further instrument shall be required to give effect to this provision, provided that the Transferee shall execute and deliver to
Landlord any instruments Landlord may reasonably request to evidence and confirm such subordination and attornment;

                  (d) each sublease shall terminate upon any termination of this Lease, unless Landlord elects in writing to cause
the subtenant to attorn to and recognize Landlord as the lessor under such sublease, whereupon such sublease shall continue
as a direct lease between the subtenant and Landlord upon all the terms and conditions of such sublease;

               (e) each sublease shall bind the subtenant to all applicable covenants contained in this Lease with respect to
subleased premises to the same extent as if the subtenant were the Tenant; and

                 (f) each sublease shall not grant renewal rights to subtenant beyond the Term (as the same may be renewed)
without the prior written consent of Landlord.

          12.6 Tenant shall, within ten (10) days after the execution and delivery of any assignment or sublease, deliver a 
duplicate original copy thereof to Landlord.

          12.7 Other than any sublease or assignment to an Affiliate of Tenant or a Permitted Assign, if any sublease or
assignment (whether by operation of law or otherwise) provides that the subtenant or assignee thereunder is to pay any
Assignment Profit (defined below), then Tenant shall pay to Landlord fifty percent (50%) of any such Assignment Profit 
applicable to the sublease or assignment no later than thirty (30) days after any receipt thereof by Tenant. Acceptance by 
Landlord of any payments due under this Section shall not constitute approval by Landlord of any sublease or assignment, nor
shall such acceptance waive any rights of Landlord hereunder. As used herein, the term “ Assignment Profit ” means any
amount in excess of the sum of (a) the rental and other charges due under this Lease plus (b) the reasonable, out-of-pocket
expenses (including brokerage commissions, marketing and advertising expenses, legal fees, costs to prepare the space for a
subtenant, allowances, rent abatements, free rent periods and other concessions) which Tenant reasonably incurred in
connection with the procurement of such sublease or assignment, whether such excess be in the form of an increased monthly
or annual rental, or a lump sum payment (and if the subleased or assigned space does not constitute the entire Premises, the
existence of such excess shall be determined on a pro-rata basis); provided, however, that “ Assignment Profit ” shall not
include (1) any non-rent consideration paid in connection with a business sale or merger or other similar business transaction
for which the assignment is necessary but fulfilling a larger purpose than solely the assignment, or (2) any bona fide payments 
(which are not disguised rent) for furniture and/or office equipment or other personal property or services accompanying the
assignment or sublease).

          12.8 Subject to Tenant’s rights set forth in Section 35 , Landlord may assign, mortgage, pledge, hypothecate or
otherwise encumber or transfer its interest in this Lease, as landlord hereunder and as owner of the Office Complex, at any time
to anyone, in its sole discretion, without the prior written consent of the Tenant or any successor in interest to the
  
                                                                 -23-


Tenant. Landlord shall deliver to Tenant notice of any such assignment, mortgage, pledge or other transfer of this Lease or the
Office Complex no later than five (5) Business Days following the effective date thereof, provided that Landlord shall use 
commercially reasonable efforts to deliver notice of same to Tenant within ten (10) days prior to any such transfer. 

     13. Utilities . Tenant shall make all arrangements for service and pay as and when due for all electrical power, water and
other utilities used and consumed in connection with all or any portion of the Office Complex, including all surcharges, taxes,
fuel adjustments and sales taxes and charges thereon and other sums payable with respect thereto, directly to the service
provider or, to the extent incurred by Landlord following Landlord’s delivery to Tenant of an Operation Transition Notice
pursuant to Section 6.3 , as Management Costs (as defined on Schedule 6.3 ) pursuant to Schedule 6.3 . Tenant shall also be
responsible for paying all telephone, television, radio, cable, satellite and other communications services provided to the
Premises, including all surcharges, taxes and sales charges thereon and other sums payable in respect thereof; such items to be
